The other day I realized I had some extra felt left over from a project and decided to make a small felt board for Briana. I remembered this from when I was younger and hoped she would find it as fun as I did when I was her age. Sure enough, she loved it! And the one I made was just a quick idea, when I make my way to a craft store I will buy a bigger piece of felt to make the backboard and more colors to make more things. Right now I have a regular size piece of felt clipped to Briana’s chaulkboard and I only had white felt left over so I drew on it; a house, a car, two people, two trees, a dog, and the sky. And she loves it.
If you want to make this on your own, all you need is a big piece of felt (you can put it on a board or simply clip it to your chaulk board or refridgerator). Then you cut out shapes, people, places, things, whatever! If your tot is able to use scissors (the kid ones, of course), let them create their own shapes. You can go simple with shapes and simple objects or you can go for a challenge by making people with glued on eyes, hats, etc. The ideas are endless and its not messy at all!
