Pretending to cook is one of my kids' favorite things to do. They had a lot of fun playing with felt to create their own food. Then they played with it all day.
First, I grabbed every color from our felt stash that was in a "food" color. I wanted the kids to be able to create any food they could imagine.
Then I let the kids go wild with the felt, cutting out any shape they wanted. My 5 year old had a lot of fun cutting out his shapes. My 3-year-old needed a bit more help. She told me what to cut.
