DIY felt lollipops: make play food
May 042014
 

My 3 year old loves to play in her little kitchen. She loves to pretend to bake potatoes and fry bacon. She loves to cook for Mommy and for her baby sister. I figured it was time for some more felt food. I could expand her food collection and stretch my crafting muscles at the same time. Win-win, right?

My last attempt at felt food-making went really well with these felt breakfast foods (bacon, eggs, and pancakes). Over the next few days, I will be showing you how to make all kinds of felt desserts (cupcakes, cookies, even cannolis). Today, though, we will be making felt lollipops. It’s really simple, I promise!

*TIP: You can also use lollipop sticks in place of the pipe cleaners if your little one is likely to bend the pipe cleaners. With the lollipop sticks, this will look even more realistic and will be more durable.
