Refrigerator Magnet Menu Planner

Instead of meal planning charts and index cards and computer generated worksheets, etc. Try hanging meal magnets on your refrigerator! You can see all the meals we usually have at a glance and shift them around (hang high enough your toddler doesn’t mess up your week.)

Step 1: Make a list of main dinner meals and laminated it

Your meals  won’t be the same so mine but maybe able to use some of them. Download the PDF files below

.

Step 2: Make a 7- day meal plan mat and laminated it

This one matches my kitchen.  Get creative, create something to match your kitchen decor.

Step 3: Add magnetic strips on the back of the mat and on the back of the meal “tags”

Get a roll of magnetic tape at any dollar store.

Plan your menu on the fridge!



Step 4: You now have a handy Meal Planner to put on the refrigerator.

I do not plan ahead a month of meals but here is a monthly planner if anyone can use it.

  1. Absolutely super idea! Love it. Thanks.

    Robin,

    This is an excellent idea! Thank you for sharing it with us. This visual menu will be very helpful with my pre-reader & new reader children. Where did you find the pictures of all the different meal ideas? I think I’ll need to do this for breakfast and lunch too. Can you share the dimensions of the Menu Planner form layout? I’d like to make one that matches my home decor better.

    Blessings,

    Mrs. H

    What a super visual idea! It certainly helps to get the kids planning dinner. I use 200 Weeknight Dinners – it is 40 weeks organized and ready to print. I can’t wait to turn it into a chart that the kids can help with! I’ll add the link if you are interested.

  22. Why viewers still use to read news papers when
    in this technological world all is presented on web?

  23. I have to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in writing this blog.

    I am hoping to see the same high-grade content from you later
    on as well. In fact, your creative writing abilities has
    inspired me to get my very own site now ;)

    My site; search engine optimization

  24. It’s actually very complicated in this busy life to listen news on
    Television, therefore I just use the web for that purpose,
    and obtain the most recent information.

  25. I think the admin of this web site is actually working hard in favor of his website,
    as here every stuff is quality based information.

  26. I have read so many articles concerning the blogger lovers except this article is actually a good post, keep it
    up.

  27. I every time spent my half an hour to read this webpage’s articles or reviews everyday
    along with a cup of coffee.

  28. I got this web site from my buddy who told me concerning this website
    and now this time I am visiting this website and
    reading very informative articles at this time.

  29. Very shortly this web page will be famous among all blogging and
    site-building viewers, due to it’s fastidious posts

    a straight row, you can fit more herbs in the container, plus you give the planter a pleasing look.
    Once you know how much you can spend on your new project,
    section it off into categories for the things you need.
    Raised beds can be built as high as you need them and

    to plant and grow their garden.

  31. Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.

    on the internet, someone with some originality!

  33. But because of the advancement in technology and people are getting hooked to
    the internet, advertising has also evolved. “Website building and website optimization are on two separate pages. Since the purpose of SEO article is to increase the ranking of the website and direct more traffic to it, therefore, everyone should get SEO article written for the website.

    link on your page at proper place and other person will also do simolar in favor of you.
