My wife found a company called Nova Naturals that has lots of incredibly cool children's toys. One of the products they carry is called a "breakfast board". According to their description it's a common practice in Germany for children to eat their breakfast on shaped boards instead of a "typical" plate. As a new parent and a DIYer I of course looked at it and thought, "We could make that". So we did. We decided to make all of the gifts we gave our son this past Christmas and this was one of them. You can make them for your own kids or give them as gifts to children you know.
I have tried to document this project with plenty of progress shots, but I don't have shots of me doing any of the steps. Sorry, I don't have three arms like Zaphod Beeblebrox.
