I've been working on Firecracker's birthday present for the last couple weeks and the felt food bug has definitely bit me! If you've been thinking about making some, YOU SHOULD! It's so easy. Plus by making felt food you can customize it to healthy stuff they eat rather than the junk food in store bought sets.
So here's what I'm going to do. We're going to have a COOK-ALONG. I'll put up one tutorial a day (except Sunday) for making felt food. We're going to do this in baby steps...just one a day. If you decide to make some of your own and blog about it, just let me know and I'll link up. If you don't blog, then you can just email with a pic to share or leave a comment. This will go on as long as I've got felt food ideas to share. I'll have a button you can take up soon to spread the word.
These are the things I know we'll be making because I've already done them:
whole wheat crust, pizza sauce, shredded cheese, pepperoni, sliced onions, green and red bell pepper slices, sliced tomatoes. (We like a lot of veggies on our pizza around here.)
Fajitas/Tacos. We'll use some of the above and add chicken chunks and refried beans
Pastas (These tutorials are already up.)
And More! I'm going to be working on lots more items too, hopefully including blueberry muffins/cupcakes, bread, lettuce, pancakes with trimmings, cookies and more!
