This Rudolph is made out of a peanut butter sandwich, but you can substitute it with your child’s favorite sandwich. Tip, use whole grain bread for a healthier sandwich (plus, it looks more like Rudolph’s fur). Leave the round (top) part of the bread in tact, then slice into an oval for the main part of the body as shown.
