Melt-in-My-Pocket Sandwich

This week in Kindermusik Adventures for the Young Child, the kids enjoyed the folk tale of “Lazy Jack”, a rather silly fellow who had a bout of good luck after a series of silly events.  This snack sounds like just the sort of thing Lazy Jack might eat (after having stuffed it into his pocket of course!).


  • Bread (2 slices per kid)
  • Butter, softened
  • Cream cheese or other spreadable sandwich fillers of your choice
  • Honey
  • Chocolate sprinkles (if you’d like)


  1. Remove crusts and make sure bread slices are square.
  2. Cut one side of the bread into a point, to make a pocket shape.
  3. On one piece of bread, spread softened butter, honey, and/or other sandwich fillers to represent the butter that melted in Jack’s pockets.
  4. Put the top piece of bread on to make a “pocket” sandwich.
  5. On the outside of the pocket, dab dots of honey “glue” around the edge.  You can top with chocolate-sprinkle “stiches!”
