So a couple weeks ago we went to the children’s museum. The kids had a blast splashing in the water table, pretending to be vets at the stuffed animal hospital, and watching the prairie dogs playing.
They also really enjoyed the new Cassano’s pizza parlor area…where they got to make and serve pizzas.Okay, so we aren’t talking real pizzas here. We’re talking pizzas with rubber green peppers and olives made out of gaskets, and don’t forget the mop-head cheese!
They had so much fun that I wanted to recreate the experience for them at home. So on date night that week the husband and I ran into Walmart to buy a pack of multi-colored felt.
I knew each little chef would want his/her own pizza to create, so I opted to cut out 2 crusts. A couple wavy circles from red felt make the “sauce.” With permanent marker I drew mushroom clusters on tan felt. I also made peperoni slices, white onion circles, and chopped up some green peppers (little green rectangles). Finally, some 3-4 inch strips of yellow felt made up the shredded cheese. They look pretty good in our play kitchen dishes! Here’s how the pizzas look with all the yummy toppings!Anyone hungry?
I can’t wait to introduce them to their very own pizza kits!
