Crochet Lettuce


diy play food

Your kiddos can bend this crochet lettuce and unlike plastic toys it won’t snap and break!

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.

This crochet lettuce looks like little flowers 🙂

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
