Here’s a free pattern for how to crochet lettuce… actually it’s more than just a free pattern it’s a video tutorial too. Just keep scrolling down to watch the video. I’m a bit of a health nut so I’m always a little annoyed when play food sets contain burgers and fries, pizza, and every dessert imaginable.
Here are some reason you should make your own play food:
- Save money- this project only uses PENNIES worth of yarn.
- Plastic Free – plastic is some scary stuff!
- Healthy Play- you get to choose exactly what you want your kiddos playing with
I’ve made an entire crochet salad. Click here to see the other pieces.
