You can cut the crusts off of the sandwiches and cut them into four or six small pieces to make them dainty and pretty. You can pass these out for the kids to enjoy, and have a Strawberry Shortcake DVD playing for them to watch while they enjoy their sandwiches.
After their DVD is over, you may consider letting your little girl open her presents. Be sure to have them perfectly wrapped in pink or red paper. When the presents are complete, it is time to sing Happy Birthday, and eat their strawberry shortcake and ice cream. Here is a quick and easy strawberry shortcake recipe for you.
