So. You know how sometimes you get a craft idea in your mind, and until you can fully realize this grand crafty plan, all else falls to the wayside?
This is me with play food today. I mean I can’t stop thinking about it. It all started when looking at old pictures of my sister and I and finding this one of us having a tea party:
And the wheels start turning…
We LOVED playing tea party and restaurant and pretending to cook. Both of my daughters love to help mix and pour when I’m cooking for real, so wouldn’t they just LOVE to have their own pretend food and a tiny wooden kitchen to cook it up in?
There are SO MANY wonderful play food resources on the web. I particularly love this felt food thread on Craftster…the food – maker seems to have started off small and soon amassed a most impressive fake food stash. I can seriously see this happening to me.

An orange slice here, a felt breakfast there…until soon we are over our heads in felt groceries.
And, lest you think I’m *not* going to knit any food…just look at this adorable set from Cheezombie on Craftsy:
SO CUTE! Check out my Craftsy blog post for even more links to even more play foods.
I’ll keep you posted as I find more patterns and even get to crafting some foods myself. Do you have any favorite play food links? Please leave them in the comments on this post, I can’t wait to see!!
