Felt Ramen Bowl

Oh, hi friends! It's been a very long time since I created a new tutorial for Brainy Beginnings Network! I'm super excited to be back on this platform, sharing ideas with you! Things are changing at an epic pace in my life. With the onset of spring, the changes are becoming quite invigorating. The grass is beginning to green at our Snipes Farm location for Root & Wild. The kids are growing and healthy and... I'm buying a MILL! Like, an actual mill from the early 1800's! I hope to hold Root & Wild classes there, offer a space for other artist and makers; and to create a safe space for children to flourish. More on all of that, later!

Last week during Root & Wild, we had special visitor from the farm, Melanie. Melanie is one of the owners of Snipes Farm. She took the class on a farm tour! We were able to learn many interesting things about the farm including but certainly not limited to, the chicken coop name: Cluckingham Palace. Oh, my simple pun loving heart. We also brushed goats, viewed the green houses, met the horses and discovered a few babies around the farm. What a cool opportunity! With all the hubbub however, we were not able to get to our crafts. But fear not, friends. I aim to provide you with the knowledge to create your very own Felt Ramen Bowl play food! Read on!

Here is it! The most cheeky and fun play food for your amusement. Try using chopsticks to play with this felt ramen. It offers tremendous fine motor skill practice! You can even turn this into a game. Grab some dice. Each number on the dice represents one of the food items in the bowl. Each player can roll the dice and have an opportunity to remove or place the food item into the bowl with the chopsticks! The first to empty or fill without dropping the food item, wins! YAY!

Let's get started!


If you are coming from the Root &Wild class, you should have all the felt prepared for cutting. These are the pieces you should have: (You should also have an egg yolk and a colorful rectangular piece to use as the bowl not included in this picture.)
