Make Your Own Play Food

Kids love role play games and play food gives you a wealth of different scenarios to explore from a shop to a café to a picnic in the park.

You can buy play food of course but making your own is fun and if you get the kids involved they will enjoy creating something that they can use in their games later.

If you have a picky eater it just might help encourage them to try something new.

We have chosen projects that you can make along side your children, some that you can make for them to play with and some that they will be able to tackle on their own.

Don’t rush out and buy new materials to make your play food with … have a look and see what you’ve got in the cupboard first as you might be able to use something you already have instead.

If you are making salt dough remember you can use the cheapest flour that you can find.

Scroll down the page to check out all the foods …
there were too many to feature in our compilation photo.
