My cousin Jeanette has the cutest little girl! She is 6 months older than my son and I love watching them play together! Alayna recently had her second birthday. Last year I gave her a ” Book of the month club”. I think that maybe jeanette looked at some of the gifts that I made on this blog, because around Christmas she went out of her way to request a ” Felt Pizza”. I am in the middle of a move, and I didn’t have time to make Alayna a felt pizza. I thought she would have lots of fun with this Felt Cookie shop!
Along with Alayna’s felt cookies, I found some cheap items from Wal-mart so Alayna can make cookies just like her mom! I found a small cookie sheet for .99 cents and a plastic spatula for under a dollar as well.
Items included in Alayna’s Play Cookie Shop:
1) Felt Cookies. Sewed and Stuffed with pillow stuffing.
2) Cookie dough. So Alayna can ” roll out” her cookies and cut them out with a cookie cutter
3) Cookie decorations! ( felt circles in a sprinkle container)
4) frosting decorations. ( Felt cut outs)
5) A Spatula
6) A Cookie Cutter
7) Cookie Pan.
I used floss to sew these cookies. I am finding floss to be a better sewing tool than thread. It makes hand sewing go faster. I sewed these cookies while watching movies with my mom after my almost sister in law’s bridal shower!
Jeanette has told me multiple times since I gave this to Alayna a month ago, that she loves playing with it! Isn’t it the truth that fun activities for kids are always the inexpensive ones?
