DIY Felt Board

DIY Felt Board

Felt boards are GREAT for toddlers through lower-elementary-school age children. They are cheap, super easy to make, and there are just sooo many possibilities!

In order to make this one you only need the following items:

  1. A small tri-fold display board
  2. A hot glue gun
  3. Scissors
  4. Various colors of felt

Directions:

  1. Use the hot glue gun to glue on a sheet of felt on the center panel. Then, cut another sheet in half lengthwise, and glue each half on the two outer panels. I used black and white for these pieces to create a strong contrast, but now I really think blue would have been better (especially for the story panels).
  2. Use the scissors to cut whatever you want out of the felt. I started with a set of shapes to help teach T his shapes and colors.
  3. I recommend storing the felt pieces in a baggie when not in use.

When done it should look something like this:

Enjoy!
