I don't hide my little obsession with felt. Although it seems like sewing is all I do lately, the truth is... it really doesn't interest me and I don't think I am very good at it. But... I just have to because of all the CUTE ideas out there. So for those reasons I use felt whenever possible. It is easy, you don't have to finish the edges. In the past 6 months I have made a lot of activities with felt (I guess I should share some of them... that is now on my to do list). Today is the first time I actually made a felt board. And Miss.-2yr-old had a blast with the activity.
The board was a sinch to make, less than 5 minutes. I buy frames at the thrift store all the time for cheap cheap. So I took out the glass of one and added felt, pulled it tight on the back and put the back on. Thanks for the idea, www.MarthaStewart.com, Volia! I also made a 8x10 personal one for Miss.-2yr-old.
The game we played is "little mouse". There are 6 different colored houses and a mouse. I would hide the mouse behind a house and Miss.-2yr-old would look for it. She would say, "Little mouse, little mouse are you in the __(color)__ house?" I don't know how many times we did it. This activity is found all over, I got the idea from www.sotomorrowblog.com.
