Everyday until the end of this month you can expect to some great tutorials made by you, my readers! Here is a fun one that would be great for a fun Christmas present for a young child.
Hi! I’m Janice from Baby Brainstorm where I blog about ideas I do with my own two children, ages 1 and 2.75 years! I love to come up with (and borrow from others) ideas that inspire creativity and learning with my children. I hope you enjoy this tutorial!
Grab your chef’s hat, we’re going to be making pizza! Actually, this tutorial is for a very simple yet wonderfully creative no-sew felt pizza. This makes a great gift for any preschool age child, and because it is so easy to make, you can whip up a bunch in just a short amount of time. Maybe one for all the nieces and nephews too?
Here’s the rest of the html:
I love felt play food…and I love a quick project. Which leads us to this tutorial for creating a no-sew felt pizza. Great for budding chefs, for color and number practice, to use on a flannel board or on the table…imagine the possibilities!
- 1 large square tan/light brown felt for crust
- 1 large square red felt for crust
- scraps of felt in different colors for pizza toppings
Here’s the process:
1. Decide how big you want your pizza and cut a large circle of tan felt for the crust. I like mine to fit in a recloseable plastic bag, so I use one for measuring:
2. Cut a slightly smaller circle out of red for the sauce. It doesn’t need to be a perfect circle…it’s pizza sauce! I fold mine as shown to make sure it’s smaller than my crust:
Cheese (triangles of yellow felt)
(sorry the color’s a bit off in this picture)
Green Pepper (made of light green felt)
Mushrooms (made of white, gray, or tan felt)
Onions (made of purple felt)
Pepperoni (red circles with black dots made with a permanent marker)
Black Olives (made of black felt)
With all your toppings cut you are ready to make a pizza!

I am going to try this out if I can score some cheap felt! I’ve been thinking about it, but every one else sews (which I can’t) and I didn’t want to cut felt and not be able to use it if it turned out bad. Your’s is like I imagined so I will link back 🙂 THANKS!
