My kids aren’t as little anymore, but when they were, I loved handmade play food. I made a few little things for them. I mostly made up my patterns, but some amazing pattern designers have done the hard work for you, and they are worth every cent for easy-to-read, easy-to-make play food amigurumi.

First, you may as well start your kids’ meal off with this darling cup of tea with a tea bag. So adorable! Perfect for toddlers who aren’t quite ready for their own tea set yet. This link is for a pre-made toy, so your kid will have something to play with while you work on the next play food projects…
Next, head on over to Olino Hobby’s etsy shop to find a huge selection of gorgeous crocheted fruit and veggie patterns.
Of course, if you don’t want to make your own, you can always order your own set of handmade crocheted fruits and vegetables from an Etsy maker !
Having trouble introducing new foods to your kids? Why not try crocheting them play versions first? Then they have the opportunity to become familiar with the shapes and colours. Get ready to introduce your kids to these adorable sushi crochet patterns.
While not strictly play food, this adorable apple with a wormhole and worm would make a sweet teacher gift, but also fun to play with for any child.
Finish off your child’s play meal with a lovely crocheted ice cream cone! These adorable little patterns would make great handmade party favours from an ice cream social birthday party. So sweet. I love mint chocolate chip!
Have a great handmade meal (with no calories) and food you don’t mind your kids playing with! Perfect handmade gift to accompany a toy kitchen, something almost every kid loves to play with!
