Noticing that there was a lack of vegetable variety in our play food reserve, I thought it would be a good time to create a few more food items. Potatoes, chicken, and apple slices. Sounds like a good meal. The spuds were made from an old pair of stockings. There was also a lack of meat in our supply, ergo the felted chicken legs. They were super easy to make using the template on the blog, Art Threads. From this day on, we can serve bacon AND chicken to Oma and Opa when they visit.

Chicken legs are not a typical meal for us, so I had to explain to the girls what these were and how to pretend-eat them.

And lastly, the felt apple slices. The girls routinely have apple slices for lunch (sometimes with peanut butter spread on top). It's a favorite in this household. I predict a felted apple pie in the future. Oh yes, we need more felt desserts.
Here are the other felt foods I've been working on:
