We are a family with three 'wee winkles' exploring the pleasures and perils of educating at home using Scripture, Montessori and a lot of love!

Play food

For a long time Lamb's kitchen play things have consisted of a few old pots, spoons and containers from the kitchen. He has always enjoyed play cooking but I thought for Cherry's second birthday we might jazz up our play cooking department.

So we bought a set of plastic fruit for her to cut, a set of mini pots and pans and a wooden toaster complete with bread and butter. She already had the tea set from her first birthday.
THEN one of her aunties bought a little ceramic dinner set and the other made the beautiful blanket.

Mummy had gotten busy as well.

Felt eggs. Ravioli and bow pasta.

Felt steak, beans, cauliflower and brocolli. Then swiss cheese, lettuce leaves and tomato slices.

There are SO many ideas for making felt food online. I didn't follow any tutorials or anything but looked at the pictures and worked out how I wanted to do it.
It was actually a very relaxing project! Easy to do in front of the tele at night and nothing took very long so immediate satisfaction level was high.
I think I might be making some more felt food for the winkles at some stage!
