Peanut Butter Jelly Time!

I have this thing with the kids during the summer: if we go on an outing that will go through lunchtime, I encourage one of them to make a picnic for everyone. Surprisingly, they're totally into it! Even though they make the same 3 things each time, they LOVE feeling like they're surprising their brothers when it's their day to make lunch. Today we're going to the aquarium. Potato, my 7 year old friend, is in charge of lunches.
I just watched him put peanut butter on one piece of bread.
Then he put jelly on top of the peanut butter and spread it around.
Then he put jelly on the other piece of bread.

I looked at him with sort of pensive eyes, so he explained "Well one piece needs jelly and the other needs peanut butter before you put them together. But I like letting the peanut butter get used to the jelly before I throw more bread in the mix."
