Chocolate anyone? Use this free template to make a fun learning activity for your felt board just in time for Valentine's Day! Toddlers or preschoolers can match the loose felt shapes to the ones attached to the heart. You can also work on identifying the names of each shape.
Felt boards are such a fun, interactive, and SCREEN FREE activity for children of all ages. Felt naturally sticks to felt, so you can use this board for so many activities. One year olds may just like to stick felt pieces to it, while 2, 3, 4, 5, 6+ year olds can create imaginative stories, play learning games, or just have some creative fun with pieces!
Here's an idea to spruce up those fake pumpkins you see in all the stores! It's not quite kid related (although they can definitely help you make it!), but I just have a love for felt decorations. Not only is it very simple to make, it's also a nice fall theme that can last from September to November.
This activity has entertained my kids each year for quite a while, at all different ages (1-5). It's simple and inexpensive to put together - who doesn't have an abundance of plastic eggs and felt at home?! Maybe the felt is just me, but it is only about 40 cents per sheet to buy.
This is a fun, versatile way to incorporate crafts and learning! Not to mention that it is super EASY to make. You basically cut hearts. Want to make it even easier on the preparation side? Just trace hearts and have your child practice their cutting skills.
