1 2.5-ounce package thinly sliced cooked ham

Cook's note: This recipe is simple enough for kids to prepare.
Divide ham into 4 equal stacks. Use a table knife to cut the crust off the bread on a cutting board. Roll out each slice of bread with a rolling pin until it is 1/4-inch thick. Put 1 stack of ham on each flattened slice of bread. Then put 1 stick of string cheese on top of each stack of ham.
Roll up the slices of bread. Cut each into four pieces, if desired. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and store in refrigerator until ready to pack with optional salad dressing in your lunch bag with an ice pack.
To eat, dip sandwich in salad dressing, if desired.
