How to Make a Simple Felt Board for Travel or Quiet Time
What You'll Find on This Page
- One sheet of felt – make sure it’s the regular kind, not the stiff type. You want to choose a color that is different from the color of the shapes you intend to use with the board. Craft felt works fine for this activity.
- File folder
- Glue stick
- Trim the felt to fit inside the file folder
- Cover the back of the felt with glue using the glue stick. If you’re using liquid glue, spread it very thinly – otherwise it will soak through the felt and make it so that felt shapes don’t stick as well
- attach felt to inside of file folder
- Enjoy :)
