My son is 7 going on 16. He wants to make all the decisions and gets extremely frustrated when things don’t always go his way. So on nights when I am making a meal that I know my picky eater will not eat more than 2 bites, I let him chose what he wants for dinner. You would think he won the lottery or something!
So I decided to make dinner time a little more fun by letting him make his own personlized plate. Plus it’s such a cute and fun keepsake. The plate turned out so cute, I’m going to have him make a few more to give to alll his grandparents. They will think it’s the most adorable gift!
