Letter Sandwiches

Bread and peanut butter make a perfect canvas for your toddler's alphabet cereal sentences.
By: Trish Kuffner, author of The Toddler's Busy Book

Letter Sandwiches


  • Alphabet cereal
  • Sliced wheat bread
  • Peanut butter, jam, or honey


  1. Spread a few slices of bread with peanut butter, jam, or honey.
  2. Help your older toddler spell his name or a simple sentence such as "I love you" by applying the appropriate alphabet letters to his slice of bread.
  3. Younger toddlers will probably enjoy simply sticking the letters onto the bread in no particular order.
