There's been a lot of gorgeous felt food out there recently
and I've spent many happy evenings marveling at the talent
and creativity of the people who've made them.
And here's a page worth looking at for some jaw-dropping inspiration.
Scrumptious. Someday, I'm thinking, when I have the time,
I might cook some up myself, hopefully before the kids become teenagers.
In the meantime, the girls and I made foam food.
I cannot sufficiently extol the virtues of foam stickies
and foam sheets - my eldest daughter is only just turning 4
and it is probably the perfect crafting material for both her
and her almost-two-year-old little sister, at least until they
discover fabric. They're colorful, slightly 3D, mostly self-adhesive
and mess-free. Today we spent a morning indoors
and on the spur of the moment made
and maki (sushi rolls) for supper.
Cow, do you recognize those chopsticks?
Emily made her own popsicle stick
which reminded me of the collection of lollipops we'd made
some months ago for her Donut House and Candy Store
the foam shapes together. And I liked that they could assemble
the food with me -like putting the toppings on the pizza -
as if it were real food in the kitchen but without the mess!
