I’m super excited about the latest UK giveaway from Alfie’s Attic, we’d really like to spread the word. There are also some fantastic offers running on the Facebook page. We wouldn’t want anyone to miss out!

So, to celebrate spring Alfies Attic are giving away this Melissa and Doug felt Sandwich food set. It’s perfect for rainy days play or sunny alfresco dining. Children can open their very own sandwich shop, and we all know how much fun they have doing this! Alfie is a very keen menu maker!

Their are dozens of sandwich stuffers including meats, cheeses, vegetables, condiments and more. Use white or wheat bread slices or a pita pocket to complete a multitude of special orders!

Felt Food Sandwich Set – More Ways to Play and Learn:

  1. Ask the child to identify each food item (other than condiments) and to categorize it by basic food group: meat, dairy, grain, fruit or vegetables.
  2. Take turns being a chef and a dining customer in a restaurant. Place an “order” for a sandwich with a variety of ingredients. Have the child assemble your order using auditory memory. Discuss which types of sandwiches are generally more appropriate for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
  3. Have the child identify the colours and obvious shapes of each food item.
  4. Place all the felt food pieces in a row. Count the number of pieces. Repeat until the child is able to count them independently.
  5. Visual memory skills: Place 3-4 ingredients in front of the child. Let the child study them before asking the child to close their eyes while you remove one piece. Ask the child which piece was removed. Gradually increase the number of ingredients.
