Kids Lunch: Cement Truck Sandwich

Here’s one for the boys!!

It took me forever before the tomboy creativity kicked in,
but it’s here now and I’m on a roll…literally!!


~ Bread ~ Apple ~ Fruit Snack ~ Cookies ~ Grape ~

Please tell me I’m on the right track…
I have 3 girls, so I’m out of touch with this kind of thing!!



Cut a piece of bread as shown to look like a truck.
Cut the side off an apple for the mixer.
Shape a window, door, and stripes out of apple as well.
I used a vitamin bottle to round out the crust for the wheels to fit.
2 chocolate cookies are used for the wheels.
Tiny slices of grape are used for the headlight and door handle.
A red fruit snack for the caution light on top of truck.

Let’s get mixin!!!



~ Bon Ap[petite] ~

    yes very boyish indeed 🙂 and the legos around the plate were a nice touch…..although your next challenge should be to make Legos out of something….jello?

      hey thanks!! I walked around the house like 20 times trying to figure out what to use as a back drop…big blocks were the only thing remotely boyish!! 🙂 I do believe that they have lego jello molds. Could be interesting!!

        Oh good. Thanks for letting me know that. My girls totally didn’t know what it was. For reals. Girls and boys: WORLD OF DIFFERENCE!!! 🙂

        Love the boyish – i strolled over from craft gossip and as a mumma of three boys this will go down a treat!!! And love the fact that nothing seems to be american specific, i hate finding cute stuff and having to work out alternatives!

          Hi Sarah Lou!! Thanks for the comment and I’m so glad that you recognized the simplicity of the site!! I created this site for that very reason!! I too hated seeing so many cute ideas but needing to run to the grocery store just to make it. I would LOVE to see your version of the cement truck if you decide to recreate it for your boys!! Oh, and welcome to Little Nummies!!
