Felt boards are wonderful for kids’ learning and development, including:
- colour recognition and patterning
- literacy and numeracy skills – letters, numbers and shapes
- imagination and creativity – making silly faces and other creatures, pretend food
- storytelling – retelling familiar stories or making up their own
You can easily make your own felt boards with scrap pieces of felt and your own simple designs or choose from a range of free templates.
Travel sized felt boards make ideal busy bags for kids on the go or whenever you need to keep them occupied with a fun activity.
