Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice!
Tomorrow is my God daughters birthday, and I wanted to make her a special gift this year. I decided to make her some of the cute felt play food that I’ve been making for my girls.
Her mommy is from Ireland, and has a great fondness for tea, so I thought I would include a few tea bags.
I cut out the shape from white felt, and embroidered TEA on it in pink. I used a small satin ribbon for the string and attached a heart to the end. I love how they turned out.
I ordered a pattern on-line to make the cupcakes. One is chocolate, one is vanilla. I decorated one with a rose and one with a strawberry. To make the strawberry a used a free pattern I found here. The icing and whip cream details are from the pattern I purchased. I thought it would be fun to nestle them in some real paper cupcake wrappers.
I also made a fun new cookie counting game. I made six chocolate chip cookies, with varying numbers of chocolate chips, from one to six. I really like that they can be used for pretend tea party play, and also as a counting, number identification, or number ordering game. It appeals to the teacher in me 😉
I found these fun little toaster oven trays to use as a small cookie sheet.
I also found a pretty play baking set at the toy store to include.
I hope Tara enjoys her new baking and tea party toys, and has the happiest of birthdays!
