Traffic Light Sandwich

Who doesn’t love getting in the kitchen with the kids? If you’re looking for some inspiration and a great way to talk about road safety with your little ones then try our fun Traffic Light Sandwich recipe. This activity is also a great one to do at playgroup.

Items you will need:

  • 2 slices of bread
  • Butter or margarine
  • Sliced tomato
  • Grated carrot/cheese
  • Lettuce leaf/sliced cucumber
  • A small round cutter

Then follow these steps :

  1. Butter both slices of your bread.
  2. Use a small round cutter (about the size of a 50 cent piece) and cut out three holes from one slice of bread. Make sure they are in a line just like a traffic light.
  3. Put your sliced tomato in top third of the full bread slice; the carrot in the middle third and lettuce in the bottom third.
  4. Now put the piece of bread with the holes on top so you can see the tomato, carrot and lettuce peeping through – just like a traffic light!

Voila – we hope you enjoy eating your yummy, colourful sandwich!

Use this opportunity to talk about what each colour means:
Red – STOP
Orange – Slow Down
Green – Go!
