Read The MENU!!!!--Creative Contest!

Does this sound familiar?

Kid: "Mom! I'm Hungry!!"
Mom: "What would you like?"
Kid: "What do we have?"
Mom: "Same thing as 10 minutes ago."

Well, it happens that way about a gazillion times a day around here, so a couple months ago, I snapped and made menus. Are they fancy? not yet. I was going to laminate them, but wanted to wait to see if it would simplify things a bit around here. They really have helped, so now I'm going to look for some fun frames for them and do something cute with scrapbooking materials, but if I wait till that happens, it could be next winter.

If your kids can't read,  you could do this with pictures, either take the pictures yourself or steal them from Google images or *gasp!* use clip art. I know some people hate "clip art."  You could even get your kids involved cutting up the packages of what you feed them routinely and gluing them to a "menu."

My 4 y/o is catching on to reading, but the 3 y/o needs a picture menu, although she pretty much only eats apples. all. day. long.

So, here's the challenge.

Create YOUR fancy, decorated menu, and blog about it with a link back to this post, or if you don't have a blog, just email me pics of your creation.

Deadline is March 31.  Winner will be chosen by readers through a vote! Be sure to leave your email address when you submit links in the comments!

When you submit your entry, please say if you'd prefer an apron or an alien if you win!

Yours certainly will be better than mine!
