Pizza 'Make-A-Meal'

Okay, so who doesn't love Melissa & Doug stuff? Seriously.. They really have the neatest stuff! Today we had the opportunity to sit down and play with a new product called Make-a-Meal Sticker Pad. You get to pick a place setting (there are 15 in the pad), then create a meal from over 225 stickers from every food group, including beverages and desserts. It was such a fun thing to play with. We played restaurant with ours and I ordered special meals that the kiddo had to create and deliver! What fun. On her own, she made an elaborate pizza meal on her sticker pad, so pizza lunch it was.. slightly deconstructed for fun, but pizza nonetheless.

Deconstructed pizza with bagel thins and pizza sauce on the right side, and in the left side is raspberries, turkey pepperoni, black olives, red bell pepper, and Bocconcini (mozzarella balls) sprinkled with Italian seasoning.

Daddy got sent to work with pizza sticks, packed in our Easy Lunchboxes, to have his own pizza fun too. Skewers of Bocconcini, turkey pepperoni, green pepper, and black olives, toasted bagel thins, pizza sauce, and extra 'toppings'.

And, in case you are interested in those Melissa & Doug sticker pads, they have lots of other fun ones too. I'm after the Sweets & Treats and Habitats ones next! So neat!
