Be the Cook

10 min1 participant

Create a favorite sandwich and transform letters into delicious treats.

Let's play!

Each letter brick represents an ingredient

  1. Think of a sandwich you want to eat.

  2. Search the alphabetical base plate for the first letters of each ingredient in your sandwich

  3. Build your sandwich on your base plate

How to prepare

  • 2 base plates

  • All letter bricks

Prepare one of the base plates alphabetically for ease in finding letter bricks.

 

Facilitation tips

  • Suggest “Imagine you are ordering your favorite sandwich in a fun restaurant”

  • Ask “How did you stack your sandwich?  In a pile? Flat on the baseplate?”

  • Offer sandwich ideas “s’mores: “G” for graham, “C” for chocolate, “M” for marshmallow”

Possible variations

  • Use letter bricks to represent a story: “L” for lake, “T” for trees, “H” for house

  • Determine bricks are food items at the supermarket or clothes in a chest of drawers.
