Put your little chef to work without the messy cleanup! Felt play food is not just fun—it’s soft to the touch and stimulates both motor skills and imagination!

Whether it’s doughnuts and eggs for breakfast or pizza and BLTs for lunch, kids will have a great time making whatever’s on the menu. Get started with our templates then add any food you like by cutting out its shapes.

We used hot glue to seal edges and hold toppings in place, making it a quick and easy craft for ages 3 and up. But if you’re concerned about safety issues, you can take a little more time and sew the felt pieces together using a blanket stitch.
