As I said in my Leprechaun’s Garden Sensory Box post the other day, I’ve been focusing a lot on crafts & fun activities for my 2 year old lately. One of these projects was making her a felt board. Since I stay home with her and she hasn’t gone to preschool yet, I take her to a lot of storytimes and other activities and have been reading tons of preschool-aged magazines and blogs to get ideas of fun learning activities we can do together at home. Felt (or flannel) boards are lots of fun and a great literacy tool. They’re kind of expensive if you go buy one, but of course they’re much cheaper if you DIY.
So here’s what you need:
2-3 yards of felt (you can buy this on the bolt at JoAnn’s. Don’t forget your coupon!)
2 pieces of foam board (I bought mine in a 2 pack, again worth bringing a coupon.)
