Turn your preschooler into a world-class sandwich chef. Mix up unique sandwiches using the letters of the alphabet to form simple sight words. After creating this entertaining paper craft, let your preschooler spend the afternoon exploring the letters of the alphabet!

What you'll need:

  • Colored Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • 1 black marker
  • Crayons or markers
  • Ziploc bag
How to make your alphabet sandwiches craft:
  1. With adult supervision, cut out two thin, rectangular pieces of brown cardstock to represent the "bread". Set aside. (see photos)
  2. Using the scissors, cut out a thin "slice" of each of the following colors of cardstock. Write the sandwich ingredient that corresponds with each piece of cardstock in the center of the cardstock. On the left and right side, write the first letter of the sandwich ingredient as a capital letter. For example, for lettuce, write "L" on the ends of the cardstock. (see photos)
