    Thanks for the great printables! If you make anymore please add them. My 3 year old son is making me some fruit salad as I type! : )

    What a great idea! My daughter (3.5yo) loves cooking (real food and pretend), she’ll love having her own recipes to follow!

    My youngest loves his play kitchen–he has a whole little kitchen corner in our schoolroom. He plays restaurant all the time, taking orders and serving “customers,” and even has a menu posted for all to see. I love the idea of the recipe cards, and I know he will love them too.
    Thanks for sharing!

    I just love this idea! What a fantastic educational activity. My son isn’t old enough quite yet, but when he is, I will definitely be using this. Already saved it with Evernote. Thanks for sharing!
