Play Food: Whole Wheat Pasta

A quick and easy project for today! Boo and I made some whole wheat pasta for her play market.  It looks so realistic! We started with 2 pieces of oatmeal colored craft felt:

I cut the felt into half inch strips:

We used plastic sleeves to package the pasta. Note: plastic bags shouldn’t be used for children under 3.

I created a label and printed it off onto adhesive sticker paper (from your office supply store):

    When I was a little girl, a while back, my Mom would open all baxes and cans from the bottom so I could have the empities for my store. Felt seems much safer than cans though.
    Take care. You and your family are in my prayers every day.

    love it! I teach kindergarten in a low economic school where some children don’t know what whole wheat is. I plan on making something with real whole pasta for them to try and then adding this to our play store. Helps meet 2 standards in health and math. Fun simple idea, thanks!

    Super cute! Amazing that you are gathering enough energy to do something fun for your daughter given everything going on. Thinking and praying for you every day. My hubby had lymphoma at age 25 – he’s been in remission since ’93. I have faith that you will kick this cancer and be celebrating remission anniversaries too!

  2. [...] Theme A while ago I started making some felt cookies to go along with the baking theme for the week.  I bought two different colors of felt for different “flavors” and proceeded to cut circles, intending to sew two circles per cookie, then stuff it with fiberfill.  Well, first I sewed colorful felt pieces on top for “icing,” ambitiously topping every single circle before I realized I had no more pieces for the bottoms. *sigh*  So I had to get more felt and ended up with a whole slew of pretend cookies… and I didn’t even finish them!  Sewing the bead sprinkles took a while and I just finished the ones that were almost done by that point.  Side note: I got some oatmeal-colored felt intending to add in some other goodies, which of course I didn’t get around to, so instead I may use it to make pretend whole wheat pasta!    [...]
