These are really fun to use at children's parties, because they can all make their own foods however they want. The pizza is probably the best for that, because of all the toppings. I think throwing the spaghetti in the air is my toddler's favorite thing to do. There are so many ways you could expand on these ideas as well.
I'm sure we will come up with some more fun foods. Do you have any that you like to make?
We just made a felt Mr. Potato Head, so I'll have to share that soon, too.
You will need these items:
Felt colors for the pizza:
tan, red, dark red (for pepperonis), white, green, and yellow
Felt colors for the salad:
two or three different greens, white, red, orange
Felt colors for the spaghetti:
red and brown
You will use tan or cream colored yarn cut into strands for the spaghetti.
Cut a round, tan circle for the crust, and a red, smaller circle for the sauce. Then, cut small, white pieces to look like cheese. You can add yellow peppers or pineapples, green peppers, and red pepperonis.
Cut jagged pieces for green lettuce, a white "blob" of ranch dressing, and then add your red tomatoes and orange carrots.
Cut the yarn into small strands. Next, add the red "blob" of sauce on top of that with a few brown meatballs.
