I originally created a felt story board for my toddler to keep her occupied while I did lessons with my older girls, but it was such a big hit with all of my girls that I made one for each of them.
This was made for my toddler:
A simple owl in the rain. There aren’t too many pieces and she was able to figure out where everything (sort-of) went ;)
These were made for my preschoolers:
One wanted a girl, pet snail, and flowers.
And the other wanted a girl building a snowman – she’s still crazy about the movie Frozen.
- Foam board (I got a 20” x 30” for about $3)
- Felt fabric to cover the board (big enough to cover your board)
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- Lots of felt colors (they are about 4 for $1.00)
How to make a felt board:
Very simply – place the felt on a table, place the foam board on top of the felt, fold the extra felt over the sides and glue it to the back of the foam board. Cut any extra felt off.
How to make your felt pieces:
1. Find pictures online, use my doodles, or make your own doodles!! Print and cut them out. I recommend using card stock paper…. you’ll see why in step 3! :)
2. Tape to felt.
3. Cut felt around the picture. (Card stock paper is tougher and easier to cut around vs. regular paper)
4. Repeat for all the pieces desired… and DONE!
Stick all the pieces on your beautiful board!!
For very small pieces, you can hot glue them together. For example: I glued the white polka dots onto the umbrella because the pieces were so tiny and sure to get lost.
Here are my crazy doodles, if you would like to use them!
