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:
A pile of pasta!
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):
It’s already in her grocery cart!
Feel free to save this graphic to make your own play pasta!

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!

What a great idea! I’m totally making that for the kid’s kitchen tonight!!!
I saw this and thought of you. http://www.susieharrisblog.com/2012/01/oh-joy.html
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!
