Portland_chocolate_milkshake_in_mason_jar Happy Chocolate Milkshake Day!  Check out our Pinterest boards for more milkshake ideas!  Yum!

You know what is also awesome (even though it's not edible)?  Play Food!  Pretend kitchen play is awesome.  It encourages sharing, builds hand-eye coordination, expands creative thinking and is a fun way to imitate the grown-ups.  Here's some of our favorite play food toys:

Also from Melissa & Doug, this Bake & Decorate Cupcake Set is a kitchen must-have.  Use a dry erase pen to decorate the top of each cupcake, then serve them up in their cupcake wrappers!  Don’t forget to use the included oven mitt!  Set includes everything shown above.

You'll definitely need something to eat all your pretend eats off of, and we would like to suggest this set from Green Toys.  Includes a complete place setting for four, all made in the USA out of recycled milk jugs.  These durable plastic dishes will hold up to even the most rigorous play. C

Have a delicious day!
