Over at one of my favorite crafting blogs, Make it and Love it, there’s a guest poster (from the blog, “Our Best Bites”) who does a mini-series focused on kids in the kitchen. These are some of my favorites from the post – but there are a lot more and you should definitely click through to read them all!(Aren’t the Octopus Hot Dogs the most adorable things you’ve *ever* seen?!)Amplify’d from www.makeit-loveit.com

you can cut all sorts of things with cookie cutters. We love making fun shapes with our sandwiches
