How to Make a Train Out of a Wrap!

Bonkers I know but this train wrap lunch is super quick and super easy to put together. My son is absolutely train mad at the moment, so anything arranged as a train get’s eaten. Have a picky toddler or fussy child? Want to make your own train lunch? Here is how we did it, and I promise, it did not take long at all!

Step 1 – Get Spreading!

  • Spread a wrap with something like hummus, guacamole or cream cheese – something you can easily “wrap” without the contents spilling out. You’ll have more train wreck otherwise 😉

Step 2 – Roll With It!

  • Roll your wrap and chop it into 3 or 4 pieces to make the train carriages. I kept a small piece from one end to make the driver cab and chimney.

Step 3 – Get Creative!

  • For wheels, you could use anything such as carrot, cucumber, cherry tomatoes.
  • We used pepper to make some “tracks” for our train to sit on. Celery or carrot sticks would also work just fine.
  • I used a square cutter to make some “cheese” windows. We always have extra mature cheddar in the fridge and it does not like any sort of cookie cutter :/ They always split a little bit. Not the end of the world though, this isn’t master chef.choo choo train lunch wrap sandwich snack

Step 4 – Fill The Carriages!

  • I filled our carriages with various other fruits and veggies. Come to think of it, it’s stupid of me to fill them since they are carriages, with, I assume, people in them… :/ Oh well.

Step 5 – Add a Treat!

  • I used a handful of mini marshmallows to make “steam” – B LOVED this, of course!
  • For the sun, I used a cookie cutter. you could use lots of things to make a sun though – a slice of carrot, a circle of sweet corn, a mini rice cake. The only limit is your imagination 😉
