“Kids Make It” Recipe: Double Decker Cracker Sandwiches

My 5-year old (LP) has been “in charge“a lot this summer, which extends to his snacking. He has been making all sorts of delicious snack creations, but this is one of my favorites.


He had a blast making these little cracker sandwiches, and it was the perfect kiddo-activity to keep him busy while I squeezed in a quick workout. I asked him to tell me his recipe so I could share it with all of you!

LP's Special Snack Sandwiches (recipe created by 5-year old LP)

  • 8 crackers (like Ritz or Trader Joe’s Golden Rounds Crackers)
