How to Make Play Food Using Glue & Felt

Children like to play with imaginary food and other items. Food is one of the first things that toddlers and young children become familiar with in the world around them. It is also something they enjoy playing with. Help build your child's imagination and creativity by making faux food from felt that can be enjoyed over and over again. Try these tips to make play food using glue and felt of various colors.

Things You'll Need

  •     Felt sheets
  •     Scissors
  •     Marker

Instructions

  1. Choose several colors of felt sheets with your child. If you are making breakfast foods, use white and yellow for the eggs, yellow and brown for pancakes and orange for orange pieces.

  2. Cut out the various shapes needed for making the foods. Cut round shapes to make the egg yolk and pancakes and asymmetrical shapes to make the egg whites and syrup. Cut smaller yellow rectangular shapes to make the butter pieces and wedge shaped orange pieces to make the fruit.

  3. Glue the egg yolk pieces onto the egg white. Use the marker to make tiny pepper sprinkles on the egg. Glue the pancakes together into a stack of three to four pancakes. Glue the brown syrup on top of the pancake stack and glue two small rectangular butter pieces on top of the felt syrup.

  4. Draw the peel and fruit texture lines onto the orange pieces. Arrange the play breakfast food on a plastic plate for your child to play with.

Tips & Warnings

  1. Involve your child in creating play food from felt. As you make them together, talk about the food names, why they are healthy and the colors that they have. Also make lunch and dinner items, including stackable sandwiches and lasagna.

  2. Toddlers and young children often put toys into their mouths; make sure that you are using nontoxic glue and felt in the play food toys. Prevent choking risks by ensuring that any small pieces of felt are securely attached and won't be accidentally swallowed by the child.
