free printable pretend play restaurant kitchen menus

There is nothing more fun than pretend play. Playing restaurant or playing kitchen are my kid’s favorite imagination games to play. Our pretend play restaurant menus are perfect in assisting with these food games.  Also, the menus are simple and the foods chosen are very kid-friendly, especially for a toddler, preschooler or kindergartener.

Just print, laminate, and use a dry-erase marker to check off which food is being selected. Don’t worry if you don’t have the food associated with each menu. This is an imagination item, and kids can serve up whatever they have available and it’s still super fun!

The free printable includes the following pages:

  1. Breakfast Menu
  2. Lunch Menu
  3. Dinner Menu

A Dessert Menu and Beverage Menu is to come!

Encourage a little dramatic play using our free restaurant menus. Be creative, imagine and have fun!

Laminate your menus

I’m a big fan of laminating. Why? Laminating gives these activities a bit more permanence. Not only will these menus get heavy use from your kiddos, but laminating them will allow them to use a dry erase marker to use the menus again and again.

I don’t use anything fancy or complex, just a simple and easy laminator. This is the laminator I use and recommend.

But if you don’t have a laminator (and you don’t want one), the self-sealing laminate pouches are perfect. No machine needed!

Below is what is included in your Pretend Play Restaurant Menus download (see the bottom of the page for actual download instructions):

Need some craft supplies?

Amazon has always been my go-to for most of my office and craft supplies. If you print a lot of printables and spend  time coloring, gluing and adding some extra jazz to them, our list of supplies can help!

I’ve split the list up into a basic list and a fancier list if you’re going to put a little more pizazz into your printables.
