  1. Spread a slice of bread with your favourite spread, hummus or cheese spread. B likes a bit of butter or plain at the mo.
  2. Cut one of the corners out of your bread as above. I popped the “spare” corner underneath the tractor’s cab.
  3. To make the wheels I stacked two crackers for the larger, back wheel. I use a slice of cucumber for the front wheel. Anything round would work here and you could use a cookie cutter.
  4. We added a bit of celery “grass” and I also used celery to make the window and pipe.
  5. I popped a bit of hummus and the rest of the carrot into these silicone muffin cases. They are ideal for this sort of stuff ๐Ÿ™‚
