My daughter Noel made up this recipe quite some time ago for her children. These are fun tuna sandwiches for kids... We add veggies to the tuna mixture and our children eat it just fine, but if you have picky eaters... feel free to adjust the recipe accordingly! We bought the dinosaur sandwich cutter at Wal-Mart. We have a few different shaped cutters... and they make lunches fun! *** We use the cutters on lunch meat sandwiches too.. and fun grilled cheeses! PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD!
