kiddo activity: felt easter egg craftTuesday, March 19, 2013
On this edition of how to entertain my three year old! LOL Anyway, when I was a kiddo my mom made a felt activity for my little sister. She used an old game board (I think it was a scrabble board but that doesn't matter, I digress) and adhered to the back side of the board felt and set the game board up like a tent card. She then cut out shapes in different felt colors that my sister could stick to the board. Felt sticks to felt.
So I thought I would make for my kiddo an Easter version of this.
Items you'll need:
- colored felt
- cardboard backing (optional - from box, cereal box, etc)
If you chose to do the card board backing using spray adhesive or brushed white glue adhere the white felt egg to the cardboard. Cut around the edges to trim the cardboard.
Out of the multi-colored felt cut out different designs. There is no right answer with what to cut out just cut away.
Give your youngster the egg and felt pieces and let them decorate. As she decorated we talked about shapes and colors. She didn't even know she was learning.
