Do you know what is totally cute and totally easy to make??
Teddy Bear Toast!
It’s just a few ingredients and only takes a couple of minutes, so whether you serve it as a snack or part of a meal, you are sure to have some excited kiddos.
I toasted the bread instead of using un-toasted bread because it makes it easier to spread the peanut butter. Less chance of the bread falling apart.
But you don’t have to use peanut butter. You could use almond butter, nutella, cream cheese (polar bears), or whatever spreadable thing you thing vaguely represents a bear’s fur.
Then press on a banana slice for its ears and snout. Top that off with two chocolate chips for eyes and a chocolate chip for his nose and you’re done!
I made a tiny hole in the banana slice snout to make that chocolate chip fit a little more snugly, but other than that, you’re pretty much just piling on the goodness.
The other thing is that this is easy for kids to make. I usually just serve it up, but you could get your kids involved in the kitchen by letting them make their own bears.
Isn’t that cute??

Check out a couple other posts I’ve done about cute foods here:
These little sandwich shapers are ADORABLE!
The full name for these cute, little sandwich cutters are CuteZCute Animal Palz Mini Bento Sandwich Stamping Cutter & Egg Shaper.
Which is quite a mouthful.
But they do so many fabulous things I can totally get why they had trouble giving it a shorter name!
I’ve used them for a bunch of different things and they really add a great element of fun to my daughters’ lunches.
You can use them to imprint on bread, tortillas, watermelon, cookie dough, and probably a bunch of things I haven’t even thought of yet.
Plus the set also has the tools to make pocket sandwiches. I’ve found that you can actually get a little bit of both peanut butter and jelly inside of them, but my 4yo actually prefers just plain peanut butter.
Oh – and I have used them to imprint on slices of cheese. But I don’t recommend that.
Here are some meals/snacks I’ve made with them:
And there are tools in the kit to also shape hard boiled eggs, but I haven’t tried that yet.
I do really love this Sandwich Stamping Set. I’ve kept the box because everything has it’s place inside of it, the directions are on the back of the box, and it fits nicely in the pantry.
I have to keep an eye on the pieces, tho… they have a habit of walking off. Especially when my 2yo sees me using them. :)

My girls and I love Frank Asch.
His books are magical. Entertaining but subtly profound: teaching life lessons and practical thinking in a way that children enjoy.
And I enjoy reading them.
Anyway, this particular book takes place at night, so the illustrations are a little dark (although that may just be because I’m reading an ancient copy). The pictures are beautiful but a little hard to make out in the video, thus Moongame is one that I certainly recommend following along with a copy of your own. Although (like all the others I’ve read) it’s still a great story to share with your kids – even if you don’t have the book yet.
But if you’d like the book, you can find it here.
My next Roaming Rosie Reads video is of Sand Cake, by Frank Asch.
This is a great favorite of mine, and, of course, of my girls. We’ve even brought it to the beach with us!
Watching Little Bear solve this puzzle brings me joy every time. :)
