Today, Travis had full permission to play with his food because we turned a bread roll into a puppet!
To start, I showed Travis how to make a “smile” in a French bread roll by cutting a slit in the middle like a mouth.
Poke two additional holes above the mouth with a butter knife to be the eyes. We filled these with chocolate chips, although raisins might have worked better.
For a silly tongue, fold up your favorite meatless deli slice (like Tofurky), and insert into the mouth.
Let the showtime begin! Travis immediately began both eating the puppet and being silly with it, squeezing so the mouth could move. The rolls were so delicious that the puppet didn’t last long! But if you manage to slow your hungry kids down, arrange the rolls on a plate with basil or lettuce leaves as hair for a cute photo-op first.
