Humpty Dumpty fell off a Sandwich!


We made this Humpty Dumpty Lunch back in August when my 5 year old started school. His Kindergarten class had a nursery rhyme parade and he wanted to be Humpty Dumpty. We had to come up with a costume using whatever we had at home. It was fun and we decided to make this lunch together the next day. We have also made Humpty Dumpty sat on a WALLffle and Humpty Dumpty sat on a S'mores that they really loved as well!

We used 2 pieces of bread, peanut butter and jelly, 1 large marshmallow, and 2 mini chocolate chips.

Make any kind of sandwich...we made pb&j. Cut off the crust to make a square. We cut our red apple in half. Peel off the top part of the apple so it looks like he is wearing pants. Use the scraps to make the arms, legs, and mouth. Make slits in the apple to push in the arms and legs. Attach the hands, feet, eyes, etc...with peanut butter. We cut a large marshmallow in half and cut around the edges for his eyes. We used 2 mini chocolate chips for the pupils. You could also use raisins.

We had lots of fun making this and it's pretty easy to do!

Here is my proud 5 year old with his Humpty Dumpty Lunch...


Here is the costume that we made using things that we had at the house. Cardboard from a box, construction paper, tape, hangers, & baby brother shoes!
