Halloween Felt Board Templates

Halloween felt board fun for kids

You may notice that some of these shapes are not made out of felt. All sorts of fabrics that will stick to felt/flannel/fleece boards.

We made a ghost out of non-fusible interfacing, and a sparkly witch’s hat was created using faux crushed velvet knit. Soft black fleece is perfect for the cat.

I find that fleece is one of the BEST materials for flannel/felt/fleece boards, but fleece didn’t exist back when these boards were most popular. I don’t use it for everything because sometimes I am looking for a different look, and it is harder to use for small details).

The apples and pumpkin are made out of felt. If you look closely, you will see that I drew on the ghost and the pumpkin with a pencil. Colored pencils also work really well, as do fabric markers and pens. Regular markers will bleed a little, which may or may not bother you.

Book-Inspired Halloween Fun for Kids

Karen Katz’s Where Is Baby’s Pumpkin? is currently Anna’s favorite book. We first got our copy when Emma was a toddler. Each of my four children LOVED this story as a toddler and preschooler! We used the plot of this book as our inspiration, making the various objects that the baby finds before finally finding her pumpkin.

I love watching each of my kids approach activities in their own way. Five-year-old Lily chose to stay close to the book (unusual for her, actually, but she does really like this book!). Six-year-old Johnny created a very cute black and grey cat that was greatly admired by two-year-old Anna.

Eight-year-old Emma consistently declares her love for every color of the rainbow, and she made very colorful bats and a rainbow-striped ghost!

After coloring their pictures, the kids cut them out to play with. Very fun! If you don’t have a felt board, you could laminate

these for durability in play. Add some adhesive magnets

for fridge play or cookie sheet play. Or make your own felt board – I have tutorials for several different versions!

  1. Fun! Here in SA there’s not any holidays from now until Christmas, so the stores are already putting up Christmas trees. Too early!

    Love this! Thank you for providing the images for download. It makes it really easy for us to try it at home. Since we have four almost 4 year-old children, it is awesome to have a ready made craft project to try.

  3. These look delightful! Thanks for the amazing round up. I’ve pinned this and followed the board. Stumbling, too!
