Felt Cake and Ice Cream

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I have somewhat of an obsession with felt.  I love the options for creativity that it offers!

Anyway, my kids have been talking a lot about ice cream lately, particularly since the ice cream truck is already running its rounds around our neighborhood on a daily basis.  I thought that it would be fun for them to have some felt ice cream cones to play with.  Cheap and easy fun!  I made a lot more than I had anticipated making because they both kept wanting me to cut out more and more cones and ice cream (especially the strawberry kind).  And since I happened to have plenty of felt for more, I happily consented. 🙂

I must say that Bryce enjoyed the cones a lot more than Lizzie did, although Lizzie certainly enjoyed it as well.

I didn’t get a picture of all of the cones that Bryce created, but there were quite a few spread across our carpet!

Since Bryce had so much fun with the ice cream cones, I wanted to make something fun for Lizzie too.  So I made her a felt tier cake for her to decorate.

I simply cut out 4 tiers with one piece of white felt,

as well as a bunch of random felt pieces that she could use to decorate her cake with, including the candles.

She really wanted pink flowers, but I made so many strawberry ice cream cones for Bryce that I ran out of pink felt!

Lizzie had fun decorating her own cake!

I made one for Bryce as well, but Lizzie ended up finishing it for him.

Fun stuff! 🙂
