Pizza Play Kit

Is anyone making any toys for their kiddos this year? I saw this pizza making idea at the Discovery Center Museum in Rockford, so I can't take credit for the idea. The Discovery Center had a pizza making area where the kids could make their own pizzas, put them in a pretend oven, put them in real boxes and they even had a kid-sized pizza delivery truck. Olivia loved making the pizzas so much, I knew I had to make a kit for her to play with at home.

I used fleece material purchased at JoAnn Fabrics for the crust. One yard of fleece will provide at least two small pizzas. I did not want the crust to be too flimsy, so I used InnerFuse brand double-sided stiff fusible interfacing to make the crust stable so the pizza would not be floppy.

I "sandwiched" the interfacing between two layers of fleece and used my iron to fuse them together.

Next, I used a strip of fleece to make the outer crust that goes around the pizza. I simply hot-glued the crust all along the outside edge of the fleece pizza crust.

Here is a shot of the finished crust.

I used sheets of foam purchased at Michael's to cut out the "sauce", "cheese", "pepperoni" and "vegetables."

 Here is the finished pizza with the cheese and toppings.

I asked one of our favorite local pizza places, Genoa Pizza, for a couple of small empty pizza boxes and they happily obliged.

I hope Olivia likes this present when she opens it on Christmas Day. She really enjoys "cooking" and making fun treats for us to eat!
