I saw several wonderful ideas for felt Valentine's Day cookies in my Google reader and on Pinterest. Boogie really enjoyed all of our Christmas baking, so I thought he would enjoy some pretend baking in his kitchen set.
First I saw this link at Nap Time Crafters and love the way they look...but this project involved sewing. HA! I don't do sewing. I can, but I choose not to because I just don't have the time right now!
Then, at I Can Teach My Child, Jenae did something similar without any sewing. She got the idea from the Frugal Family Fun Blog. I realized that not only could I do this, but I could add my own little Sierra touch and make it really authentic for Boogie based on my container saving lunacy.
I am not giving a tutorial here, because those sites provide very thorough tutorials. I am just sharing our finished products here.
In case Boogie enjoys this, I laminated and used velcro on the icing label so I can just switch it out depending on the holiday. And it is a win-win because he loves velcro. He can open and close and drop and dump with the containers while he is baking and decorating.
Inside the icing container, Boogie can choose from red, pink, or purple icing to top his cookies. I made six of each color icing so Boogie can choose to do all one color, or mix up the colors. Inside the sprinkles container, there are red, pink, purple, and white sprinkles.
This is how I am storing the cookie making fun on his shelf with all his trays at the moment. He loves this little basket.
Anyone else making festive felt food for Valentine's Day?
Linking up to these great parties!
