Raccoons are mischievous, adorable, and hard to resist, just like your little one is!

This sandwich / lunch combo utilizes basic, kid-friendly ingredients, and the star of the show is a sandwich of your choosing! With such a fun presentation, this is a fine opportunity to introduce new flavors: instead of sliced cheese, opt for boursin or another spreadable version, and in place of standard ham or turkey, choose a flavored variety, like rosemary and sun dried tomato or smokehouse. You can even try your hand at making your own fruit leather (if you think about it the day before): just blend a few cups of fresh fruit together until smooth, spread it out on a silicone baking sheet, and keep it in the oven at the lowest setting for 6 to 7 hours until set. Either way you go, the end results will still be adorable, and steal your little one’s heart!
