I love the look and feel of natural toys. I slowly converted most of our plastic toys to fabric and wood. I kept some plastic – mostly the legos and the Playmobil toys we have (a few pirates and fairies).
To me, nothing beats a pretend picnic made with handmade fabric fruits and vegetables (wood ones work nicely too).
I made the apple, pear, below and the salad (minus the tomatoes) in the picture above.
I finally got a set of felted “beads” to use as grapes, blueberries and cherries (or tomatoes). I found a handmade needlefelting booth and the Renaissance Fair we went to two Saturdays ago.
