At the moment my little 20 months old loves to play with kitchen utensils, pots and pans! I was told that he loves spending time in the kitchen area at the daycare so we got him a little Hape kitchen for home. I watched him play and pretend to make me tea (my heart just melts at moments like that!) and thought how nice it would be to make some felt food for him to play with.
First thing that came to mind were fried eggs. I thought I’d share with you how I made them just in case if you would like to make some felt eggs for your little one to play with.
Our wooden frying pan is very small, so while I was making the pattern to share with you, I made 2 sizes for different frying pans. You can download the pattern HERE.
They are very easy to make and no sewing machine required: Cut out 2 whites and 2 yellow yolks – I used pure new wool felt in off-white as I had some off-cuts and it went really well with this yellow. I do love when the off-cuts find their project as I have so many of them.
Stitch on the yolk, leave a little opening and push some toy stuffing inside to creat 3D effect. After this step I placed one egg into the frying pan and realised it is a bit big so I trimmed it a little to fit.
Finally, place the egg on a piece of felt and stitch it on. Trim the excess felt after the top side stitched on and you are done. How easy was that?!
We played with them this morning and he loved using spatular to get the egg out. I cannot wait to make some more felt food for pretend play next week!
