DIY Felt Food Banana

I've been wanting to make some felt fruit and vegetables for the boys, but I never got around to making them. After one of our Arabic lessons I needed to come up with a fun way to teach the names of fruits and vegetables in Arabic.

After searching online I was inspired to make them a set of fruits/vegetables out of felt. I've only made one so far I am planning on making as much as I can this weekend.

The process its self doesn't take long but I was working on it during the day. In between baby, school work, after school programs it took me kind of long to finish. 

I decided to first start with fruits for no particular reason :). The first one I made is a banana, in Arabic a banana is called موز. 

I didn't take any pictures as I was making it because of all that was going on around me but its fairly easy, and there are many tutorials/videos online.

Here's what mine looks like;

I chose to make this type of banana because I knew that my boys would love this. Anything to make their learning fun right :) 

I added a little sticker to make it more real. You could just take the sticker off one of the store bought bananas and stick that one there. But I wanted to make it in Arabic.

I also made some two part cards to go with the felt food. I will be making one for each fruit/vegetable.

 I will continue to update this as I make more. I hope this inspires you to make more felt food for different language studies.
