An Easy Felt Board...
After seeing a pretty neat felt board at the library recently, I wondered how hard it would be to make one and whether the cost of making one would exceed the cost of just buying one. After finding out all one needed to make a felt board was flannel, a board, and some felt shapes, I decided to try.
I bought some pale blue flannel and using a cork board we already had, cut the material slightly larger than the bulletin board. Using a butter knife, I pushed the flannel underneath the wooden frame so that it was tightly stretched across the cork. After covering the board, I began cutting out some felt shapes. So far, all we have is the moon and sun, stars, a tree, leaves, and a fence... but our toddler loves it and had enjoyed putting the shapes up in different configurations.
