Felt Pizza and Recipe Book

I haven't posted about this, but this busy bag gets played with so often that I couldn't help but share! 
Baby B was 3 weeks old at the time, and at 9PM the idea to make this felt pizza and menu/recipe book for L popped in my head and I found myself up until after midnight making it! I'm a glutton for punishment haha! I cut a circle from cardboard for the "crust."

Making the Pizza
 I cut a circle from red felt for the "sauce" and then "freecut" pepperoni, cheese, mushroom, green pepper, olive and sausage shapes from felt in the appropriate colors.

The Recipe Book
 The book itself was just printer paper folded and stapled together. The first page contained simple phrases that Lawson could learn and repeat by himself.

The next page contained the ingredients which I freehanded and colored (left page). And the rest of the 5 pages were customer "orders." For this, I cut people or families out of magazines, glued them to the top of the page and made a recipe for what kind of pizza they wanted based on the number of each ingredient they asked for. Great imaginative play

The last page. Again, containing sentences he can easily remember and recite on his own.

This bag gets played with VERY regularly. He loves to ask Brian and I what kind of pizza we want and to make it for us. The bag stays in his room on his shelf with a plastic pizza cutter and small wood cutting board that he uses for "putting his pizza in the oven" :)
