Our favorite little conductor is back with a fun cooking with kids post on how to make train sandwiches!

In case you missed, it, my 6 year old son Kian recently started a fun YouTube train channel for kids all about his love of trains! You can see all his videos on his channel, Kian’s World of Trains. I’ll be sharing some of his fun train activities here as well. Have you checked out his painting with trains project?

You just need a few simple ingredients to get started making your own train sandwiches with kids! Let’s get started!


– Bread
– Cheese
– Pretzel sticks
– Sliced cucumbers and carrots for “wheels”
– Blueberry and raspberries for “cargo”
– Circle sprinkles for “smoke”
Train cookie cutter

Watch the fun video above to see how it’s done or follow instructions below:


Step 1. Add your cheese between your bread slices. Press down your train cookie cutter to make a train shape. You might need a grown-up to help you! Use the discarded bread/cheese as “cargo.”

Step 2. Have your child decorate the train sandwich with cucumbers and carrots as wheels, pretzel sticks as connectors.

Step 3. Add circle sprinkles as “smoke”

Step 4. Last, add your berries on top of your cargo trains!

Choochoo! Time for lunch!
