How to make Unicorn Rainbow Sandwiches

Somedays I think, when will this Unicorn trend end..... then my beautiful niece's excitement every time she sees something with a unicorn on it, reminds me that it's not going to end anytime soon and who cares because it makes children happy.

Last week I made some unicorn rainbow sandwiches to encourage her to eat all her lunch, not just eat a nibble in her sandwich like most days.

Today I made this quick tutorial, so you can also make these for kid's lunches, magical unicorn parties or for a cute little children's high tea.

  • Basic cooking skills
  • Approx time 5 mins

DIY Supplies to make Unicorn Sandwiches
  • White Bread
  • Unicorn Cookie Cutter
  • Cream Cheese Spread
  • Food Colouring
  • Put some Cheese spread in tiny bowls or measuring cups.
  • Add a few drops of food colouring to each one. I used yellow, lilac, dark pink and blue. But use whatever colours you have to create the rainbow effect.
  • Mix colour through the cheese spread.
If your child reacts to certain food colourings, I do not recommend you use them. Most children are fine with colour additives, I just know from experience I could never use blue with my daughter or she would be climbing the walls for hours, literally, climbing the walls 😂

  • Spread each colour onto your bread to make a rainbow pattern.

  • Place another piece of bread on top.
  • Place the Unicorn cookie cutter on top of the bread in the middle and push down firmly to cut through both layers of bread.

Unicorn High Tea for Two?

I have placed the Unicorn sandwiches on some mini vintage saucers and used the small cups for milk, I think actual Tea is still a bit adult for little children but would be okay for a treat.

These DIY sandwiches are cute enough for little girl's birthday parties, school lunches and baby showers. Best of all they are guaranteed to be eaten by fussy eaters. 

 If your child is one of the rare few who love the crusts on their sandwiches, you can use the cookie cutter to just cut the shape out of the top piece of bread and then you can see the pretty colours of the spread.

Have fun with this DIY and remember the kids may also like to try this one, so why not encourage them to make their own lunch, but don't forget they also have to help clean up their mess afterwards 😊 
Who are we kidding, we will be the ones cleaning up!
