I am always looking for inexpensive clever things to make for Christmas. Felt squares are only $.25 each. This year I cooked up some felt foods for my girls to play with in their kitchen.

Pizza is a perennial favorite in our house, and you can change the toppings according to your tastes. Green peppers, pepperonis and mushrooms, to order.

 Anyone feel like some salmon with a little salad on the side?

 A cornucopia of vegetables, fruits, donuts, and even a cupcake to tempt your pretend palate.

 And finally, a hamburger with all the fixings; cheese, pickles, onion and lettuce. I ran out of red felt to make the tomatoes, and then I realized that the girls could use a pepperoni as a substitute.

I spent about $7 for all of the felt used in these foods. I already had the stuffing, thread and beads.

The girls saw me making these and can't wait to play with them. I've found that Santa's workshop is just too hard to keep a secret in a house of 7 people.

What are you cooking up for Christmas?

These are too adorable! I always wanted to try making felt food, but never had anybody to make it for. So instead I look at other people's felt foods. Although someday, I would like to make a giant donut/ bagel pillow.  Why, I have no idea. I love the little donut you made and how you did the sprinkles! They all look wonderful. Great work!

Thanks for the replies. My best friend wants me to make some for her kids now. We'll be doing a little private swap. I don't mind. It gives me an excuse to sit around and watch Dr Who.

These are all fantastic!

All we have to decide is what to craft with the time that is given to us.
