You'd better be playing with your food!

I'm getting unreasonably excited to play with the Tiny Girl's Christmas kitchen - which is almost done! Pictures soon (I hope!) So this weekend while I worked at the Boutique, I embroidered some felt cookies for her to bake in her tiny wooden oven! I made some last year for Valentine's Day, but never finished my chocolate chip cookies. If I hurry, I might even get some gingerbread men done in time ;D

While cleaning my studio, I ran across this Deli Unit that I made for my students. I got the idea from The Mailbox Magazine years ago. The idea is for the child to practice word recognition. They can begin by matching individual words, then start making orders when handed a "recipe card". Soooo cute that I couldn't resist making it, and I'm breaking it out to go with the kitchen! Fun, inexpensive, educational, and so stinkin cute!

I think I'll have to find a red deli basket to serve their sandwiches in! I may even have to make some felt potato chips in a bag to go with the set!

Notice that the cards get progressively more detailed.

And talk about cute details on the food. These are about life size, the words are written with a fine point sharpie and the details are just ball point pen.

Oh my gosh, these are SO cool. You are going to have an ecstatic little girl come Christmas. I love that you are making the food out of felt, how neat is that? It means so much more than if you just bought the old plastic stuff at the store.
