|My free hand cut outs of felt. I have much respect for felt artists!|
I was at Michael's yesterday just looking around for some inspiration or something. I walked by a display of felt stickers and remembered how a long time ago I wanted to make a felt board. So I decided I was going to finally do it. I bought a foam board and all different colors of felt. I think I spent about 10 dollars. I went home and stapled the large piece of white felt to it. Then I started cutting out shapes and pictures out of the felt. This is where I realized making pictures with felt is harder than it looks! I am going to try embroidering on felt next to make some neat characters, but for now the kids are having a great time with what I was able to cut out free hand. After I made a few trees and people I let the kids cut out their own designs with the left over felt. This is a great in door activity. I would like to get some felt sets that go with some of the kids books we read. Then they can re-tell the story with the pictures.
