Ever feel uninspired on what to make for dinner? Tired of the same old … same old? I have a fun project for you today. You can make a set of these Meal Planning Dice. Perfect for foodies or busy families looking to add a bit of surprise to their dinner routine, these dice are an elegant solution. They are easy to make and even make a great gift for any food lover you know.
DIY Meal Planning Dice
To make these dice, here’s what you’ll need:
I used foam cubes for this project and simply wrote the words onto the cubes. However, another option is to purchase wooden cubes like these and then use the method I describe here to transfer the words onto the faces of the cube.
So, let’s roll the dice a few times and see what we come up with, shall we?
It looks like the first roll resulted in Zucchini, Beef and Potatoes. Hmmm… how about this Summer Lasagna or this Zucchini Potato Bake? Let’s roll again…
The next roll was Pork, Quinoa and Broccoli. This Cheesy Broccoli Quinoa paired with a Pork Loin sounds delicious! Let’s do one final roll…
This time, we rolled Fish, Beets and Rice. I bet this Beet Cheddar Risotto would be delicious with a filet of salmon.
I hope this project inspires you to make a set of these meal planning dice for yourself. It has been a fun addition to our meal planning routine and it certainly results in unique, delicious combinations we would have never thought of ourselves.
Happy crafting! Happy meal planning!
