Forget Food, Think Felt

Introduction: Forget Food, Think Felt

About: Mama Bee is something I created to share my ideas and life-style as a stay at home mum. Healthy food for your family and creative ideas for little ones is what I'm so passionate about and want to share this ...

Are you trying to constantly find something new for your little one to play with around the house? Are they bored of their own toys already? Do they always touch things they shouldn't? Wouldn't it be nice to have a bit of quiet time play? Today I discovered how we can introduce play and imagination through low budget items and most importantly are safe.

Finding a pack of felt sheets from my sewing room, I instantly thought of my son playing with it. What to do with it? Well they are so colourful and versatile it's hard to choose! As he already has a wooden pizza set, I simply took my nearest pair of scissors and cut out some chips (fries), peas and ketchup. I know it's not the healthiest option but for play food it was great fun. Not only did he enjoy it but he was having a quiet time exploring on the plate. It would be great for counting too...
