We made this cute Crab Sandwich idea and my boys just loved it! You can call this a “Crab”wich or “Snap”wich…the kids will just love this for lunch!

Crab Sandwich - a fun summer lunch that the kids will love from

This fun lunch idea is also featured in our new cookbook Wild Eats & Adorable Treats!

Crab Sandwich

  • Croissants
  • Tuna Salad
  • 1 Red Apple
  • Peanut Butter
  • Toothpicks


Cut the croissant in half and add tuna salad or any toppings you prefer.

Cut a red apple in half. Then cut that half in another half. Take a small knife and cut the apple pieces into crab claw shapes. Cut circles with the white part of the apple and pop them in the top with tooth picks. We cut 2 circles from the peel for the pupils. Press those on the eyes and they will stick.

Such a fun and easy summer lunch to make for the kids…they will love it!
