Creating a felt story board is incredibly easy! My daughters (ages 3 and 4) absolutely love playing with felt pieces….and they love displaying their art. So I found a way to turn our felt storyboards in to displayed art that can be used over and over again. I really wish I had thought about this a few years ago when the girls constantly played under my feet while I was cooking dinner. I could have stuck a suction cup to the sliding glass door, hung the felt board on it, and they could have played in the kitchen while I cooked dinner. Now that they are bigger we will take these with us to doctor’s appointments and long road trips.
If you have access to a die cut machine of any kind (Sizzix, Cricuit, Big Shot, etc) then you can use that to cut pieces of felt in to an wide array of shapes and designs to use on the board. If you do not have one of those fancy machines, all you need is scissors. Cut squares, rectangles, triangles, and circles. Children will be able to enhance their creativity putting these shapes together in to fun masterpieces.
This craft is incredibly easy and very cheap to make!
- Picture Frame (I purchased two at the Dollar Tree for $1.00 each)
- Glue/Low Temp Glue Gun
- Yarn or Ribbon (optional)
Create a Felt Story Board
1) Take the glass out of the picture frame and dispose of the glass and the paper. Keep the cardboard!
2) Using the cardboard as a template cut an identical piece of felt.
3) Glue the felt to the cardboard.
4) Tuck the felt covered cardboard back in the picture frame.
5) To make this frame hang tie ribbon or yarn to the back. I braided a few pieces of yarn together to give it a more artsy feel.
6) To make this be the perfectly portable, I added a plastic bag to the back. A low temperature glue gun is one of the best tools a crafter can have.
