Try making some yummy picnic kebabs.

To make these kebabs I used houmous and spinach as the fillings, and then put chunks of apple, cheese, cucumber and tomato on my kebab sticks too.

Make sure you ask an adult to help you push the food onto the sticks - they can be quite sharp!

I used a pastry cutter to make these sandwich stars. The rest of the gang loved them!

I put spinach on a piece of bread and put the stars on top. I added some hummus and a bit of red pepper too. Around the edge I put tomato and cucumber.

You could cut your sandwiches to make all sorts of other shapes - can you think of some?
