Mini Menus

These are fun for older kids to make, especially if the are competant on a computer or with scissors.

Basic Materials List
  • scissors
  • coloured card cut to postcard size
  • glue
  • computer with printer (or you can get them to write their own)
Optional Extra Materials
  • glitter
  • stickers
  • gold, silver or coloured card cut into shapes
  • leaves
  • feathers
  • handmade stickers (the type you could use for scrapbooking or that special occassion)
  • dry pasta
  • anything else you think might look good
Method
  1. Make up and print out the menu details on the computer, or hand write the items to be on the menu. The reason we use the menu written out/printed on plain paper is because it stands out better on the coloured card.
  2. Cut menu to size and glue onto card.
  3. Decorate how you want.
Note : For our Christmas Breakfast Menus we chose to cut out small gold Christmas trees and glue them at the top. It was simple and effective.
