Playing "restaurant" and "chef" never gets old in our house! Because it's one of our favorite activities, we have all kinds of pretend foods. For example, we have ice cream cones, pizzas, salad ingredients. the list goes on and on.

While making both our Shell Mac and Cheese with Ham and Broccoli Recipe and Tasty Vegan Mac and Cheese for the Family recipes, we realized that we don't have any mac and cheese play food at home. Since mac and cheese is my kids' favorite food, we decided to make our own DIY play food mac and cheese! We had some extra uncooked shell pasta and therefore, decided to color it and glue it to a paper plate. It was really that simple!
