You might be looking for crafts for kids and activities to do with the kids. I know my daughter is at home, homeschooling for the first time. Are you? You can make this a homeschool project too. Pizza making is fun! So is this easy idea. Use the felt craft to keep kids busy and learning! And they are done with their felt kid’s craft project you might enjoy making pizza for dinner with the kids!
Felt Pizza Kids Activity
I love making felt crafts with the kids and doing kid’s activities with them. This past summer I had my little granddaughter over all by herself for the first time. It was her big first trip to stay with us(they live 5 hours away). I cut out felt pizza topping shapes, felt pizza shapes, and grabbed paper plates and we had a fun time making felt pizzas!
This is a super easy craft for kids (or) you can do the cutting if they are too young. It is easy to cut out the felt food shapes for pizza. Then the kids assemble the pizza onto paper plates. I love it when you can combine arts and crafts with learning. Then even combine this activity with baking a real pizza, for teaching kids. It makes it really fun to see how kids think, play, and learn.

Can you sew the felt pizza pieces together? Can you sew the felt topping pieces?
This is a no-sew felt project for the kids. But, yes you can sew it. Use the template as a pattern then hand stitch around the edges. See the instructions below for sewing.
- Cut two of each felt piece from the template that is exact matches, and use hand-stitching for attaching the felt pieces with thread or (my preference) embroidery thread.
- If you want them stuffed, add a small amount of stuffing sandwiched in between the two pieces, then sew it together.
- Start at one end with a knot when starting, go around the piece of felt, meet the two ends together and tie off with a knot.
Older kids can use this for a beginning hand sewing project too.
Here are a few related projects you can try too! Print the pizza-making checklist and have the older kid try reading and checking off items.
Alternatively, you can have the kids cut the pizza templates out and have the kids cut and assemble the pizza activity.
Make a coloring activity to match the felt pizza making. Have them draw a pizza and write down the topping they put on them.
