Telling Stories Through Felt Boards
I’ve been trying to find creative ways to encourage Dylan’s imagination. She loves reading and telling stories. I’m not much of a drawer (let’s be real my artistic skills are very minimal) so drawing our own book was out of the question. Then I learned that “felt sticks to felt” and decided to make a felt board.
Dylan and I headed to Michael’s to grab some colored felt. She helped me pick out the colors of smaller squares and we grabbed a larger white one for our backdrop. Then I spent an entire Saturday afternoon/nap time tracing cookie cutter shapes on to the small felt pieces.
By evening my hands hurt from trying to cut all the pieces out and I was swearing that I would be buying any additional shapes from Amazon.
On Sunday, it rained leaving us the perfect opportunity to test the felt board. It worked perfectly. I taped it up using painters tape and now we have a removable felt board. Dylan has so much fun setting up the shapes and telling us the stories.
