The Design a Menu Craft challenges your kids to think creatively about food. Ask them to imagine a restaurant that serves silly food. Then invent a fun menu for the new restaurant.

How to Make the Design a Menu Craft

What You'll Need:

  • Construction paper,
  • markers,
  • black felt-tip pen

Step One: Design a menu for a specialty restaurant. Make it silly with chicken everything -- soup, chicken desserts, and even chicken drinks.

Step Two: Fold a large piece of construction paper in half lengthwise. Write your items on the menu, and decorate it to match your restaurant theme. You can even add outrageous prices for your silly dishes.

Step Three: If you don't want a silly menu, make a real one with your favorite dishes. Use a grocery store circular to cut and paste food pictures on the menu.

Step Four: Play a game of restaurant with your friends. Gather some play dishes, a tray, and an apron. Draw order forms on a piece of paper.

Step Five: Give your friends a menu and take their orders.
