To make sandwich balls, you take a piece of bread and cut it into a circle (I used store bought whole wheat bread, since I am out of homemade... for shame, I know...) You can also cut it into smaller circles (like in my picture here), but I had better luck with one larger circle.
Take a largish piece of saran wrap and put the bread on top of it on your hand. Put a small amount of filling on it (I used some taco meat, cheese, and a little sauce). Press the sides of the bread together, and then wrap the saran around it to form a ball.
Voila! Sandwich ball!
For The Boy's lunch, I used some Bento cutters (this great transportation set from Allthingsforsale, school bus shape) to make the balls into school buses! Very cute.
