Reindeer Sandwiches-A Fun Christmas Recipe for Kids

On Christmas Day, if your family is anything like mine, there will be a big Christmas dinner in the evening.

Sometimes it’s at a relative’s house and sometimes at ours, but there is always lots of family.

We can get busy planning the perfect Christmas Day for our family. We plan for the perfect gifts for each family member, festive decorations and a great big family dinner.

But one thing we don’t usually think about is lunch. At least that’s something I don’t give a lot of thought to…until it’s time to eat lunch.

After all the gifts are opened, the stockings are emptied and the toys have been played with, little tummies will start to grumble. And I don’t know about you, but at that moment the last thing on my mind is what to make for lunch. I may even be starting to prepare for Christmas dinner.

In an effort to make things a bit easier for you on Christmas, I’m sharing this really fun Reindeer sandwich recipe.

Since these are sandwiches, they will be super easy to make. And since they use cookie cutters, this will be the perfect thing for kids to help you with in the kitchen.

And after making these reindeer sandwiches, that will be the perfect time to to make some other sweet Christmas treats.
