Playing With Food is an inspiring activity book that invites children to engage with all aspects of food – how it is grown, prepared, cooked, and presented. Vibrant illustrations by Louise Lockhart invite young readers to decorate their dream birthday cake, color in soup cans, plan a menu for a café, and fill the shelves of a kitchen. Simple recipes and craft ideas, such as building a wormery or making a chef’s cap, are peppered throughout. A delightful book that will serve up plenty of creative treats for design- and food-oriented parents and their children.
Louise Lockhart’s distinctive screenprinted illustrations are sold through her online store, The Printed Peanut, and can be seen on stationery in museum shops around the United Kingdom.
