Abbey got a play kitchen for Christmas, and she adores it! I knew we were going to give her one this year, and I had visions of upcycled tv stand kitchens dancing in my head, but when you find a nice one at Aldi for $30, you jump on it.
Now, what good is a kitchen without food? Sure, I could go to Target and buy a tub of plastic play food, but that's no fun! Let's see what kind of crafty goodness is out there...
I've had these pinned forever:
They are super cute, all hand stitched and adorable, but let's face it...that's just not going to get done. I'll get, like, 2 orange slices and a doughnut done and quit. Just being honest...
Dana over at MADE has some super cute felt food tutorials that are much more in my range of
attention span crafting abilities. I love the ideas in this post.
How cute are these grapes? They pull apart and everything!
Maybe buttons for the grapes instead of felt? Who knows, but they're definitely on my to-do list!
Dana also has some super cute cookie ideas
These aren't too far off from the cookies in the cookie game in Abbey's Quiet Book, so I know I can handle these, haha!
It doesn't get any easier than Lil Blue Boo's pasta...
And while I love making things at home for Abbey, I also know when I just can't beat a good price. Have you seen the play food at IKEA??
Abbey already has the fruit.
but the veggies, and the breakfast foods are on my list! For $8 per set, I just can't beat it!
This post isn't sponsored by IKEA, I just really love these toys! Don't even get me started on the play pots and pans that my mom brought home last week! Too cute!
