Toddler cooking - toasted cheese bread

Watching Play School some months ago we saw this idea for toasted cheese bread. I was making mini quiches for lunch out of a loaf of supermarket bread (something we rarely have in the house, since we make nearly all of our own bread) filled with ham, red capsicum, cheese, spring onion, mushroom and egg. What to do with the rest of the loaf?

We put the slices of bread on a chopping board and used biscuit cutters to cut out animal shapes. Miss 1.5 is especially good at this.

Miss 1 found the shape cutting boring relatively quickly, mainly because she hadn't had lunch yet. So instead she thought it would be a good idea to eat the left over crusts (and some of the bread that hadn't been cut yet). Miss 1.5 finished cutting out the animals and then joined in.

I put the shapes on a greased baking tray and the "twins" sprinkled grated cheese over the top.

And then we baked the bread at 180 degrees for about 10 min.

Tasty, cheesy ducks, rabbits, sheep and pigs!
