One of our favorite additions to Ada’s play kitchen are these colorful wool felt balls. They have been served as everything from blueberries to soup to tea. It is also easy to make your own felt balls if you would like a simple project. You can find beautiful felting wool here.
The dishes are a lovely ceramic children’s set from Ikea. (I much prefer living with a few broken pretty dishes than ugly sturdy ones). The fabric “pancankes” are pieces of vintage prints that Ada requested from the sewing box. We found them long ago at a flea market and they were meant to become a quilt. A few stitches and stuffing made them into food. I love watching kids invent from beautiful, ambiguous materials.
