Today’s awesome collection is by the lovely Monique of Living Life and Learning!
As we approach Christmas I love this time of year because there are so many great Christmas felt activities that you can do with your toddler. I’ve only started my own felt projects this year and it has been a blast both for me and my toddler as well. She is having a great time exploring as well as her imaginative play as she creates whatever scenes she wants with her felt board.
Felt is super easy to work with and it sticks to itself so it’s so fun for little ones to create and play with it.
For those Frozen fans, we made our own Olaf Felt Snowman, this is my daughter’s favorite movie at the moment so it has been well received. He gets into some trouble in the movie and the felt allows her to move him into some fun positions just like the movie.
The Felt Play Scene from Kids Activities Blog is a great way to discuss shapes as your toddler decorates the tree or builds the snowman.
Who can have Christmas without Felt Gingerbread Men? We love baking and decorating these cookies so they were lots of fun to create out of felt as well. I tried to come up with a variety of shapes and colors so that we could decorate our gingerbread men while learning about shapes and colors as well. The Christmas Tree Felt Board from Teach Beside Me includes a template and 4 Christmas tree designs that your toddler could try to replicate as well.
The Snowflake Matching Busy Bag from Teach Beside Me gets your child matching with shapes so that they can recreate the same snowflake patterns on the cards.
Crafty Connections includes a printable template if you would like to create your own DIY Felt Story Board. Kitchen Counter Chronicles has a great tutorial for setting up your own Snow Day Felt Board for Kids which includes storage ideas as well.
If you’d like a full size felt board idea then you have to take a look at the Holiday Felt Board from Homegrown Friends.
