Children Learn about Sandwiches At the Lincoln Children's Museum

No school, no problem for kids who participated in the Lincoln Children's Museum "Sandwich Master's Day."

Nearly 40 children learned the history of sandwiches.

"The Duke of Sandwich played a lot of cards. He asked his cook to make a meal that he could eat with one hand while playing cards," said Emily Nash of the Lincoln Children's Museum.

Children who signed up for the event spent the morning learning and the afternoon eating.

"Sandwiches are fun and we learned that they are really old. They have a lot of history. So I thought it would be fun to take something we are familiar with and children have a sandwich every day. Who has more sandwiches than children?" said Nash.

The children also learned about kitchen safety, how yeast is made, and then they all made as many sandwiches as they could eat.
