My newest discovery: Felt Food!
Jack likes to "cook" with Elyette so for his birthday I went with that and tried to find things to assist in this pretend play. Thanks to Ikea I got some seriously cute pots, pans, and dishes, but I needed some food.
I was really getting frustrated with all the plastic junk I was seeing (for way more $ than I thought it was worth) then I realized I had all these felt sheets I'd been stocking up on when on sale (5 for $1) with in the intention of making felt board stories (or something like that). Well, since that idea wasn't materializing any time soon I decided to use it to make play food. It was cheap (all cost me about $4), easy (no patterns necessary), fun, and FAST! I highly recommend trying it out. Christmas gift idea?
