Let's Play Kitchen!

My boys love to play kitchen...pretending they are cooking up goodies for Mommy and Daddy to enjoy! When Seth came to me this morning with a paper plate he found asking if he could use it in his kitchen I came up with a fun idea!!

I got the boys to the kitchen table and pulled out some of my Better Homes & Gardens magazines, paper plates, glue and scissors. I told Seth to look through a magazine and cut out pictures of food that he found and liked.

For Aaron I put the magazine in front of him and told him to point out the food he saw as I flipped the pages. I would then cut out the food for him.

Then I told the boys to arrange the food on their plates (I gave them each 4 plates).

And then we glued them on.

Then it was time for them to go play in their "kitchen".

Seth turned his room into his restaurant. His friends enjoyed his food.

A very cheap easy activity that will continue to provide hours of fun!

(and as always...ignore their clothes...we usually stay in our jammies if we are not going anywhere for the day...and the tops and bottoms don't always match...hee hee hee)
