I wanted to transfer graphing activities from poster board to the felt board. The felt circles used in our felt board caterpillar activity gave me the inspiration I needed! The felt circles were perfect for a graphing activity.
I use foam numerals on this graph but you can use pre-cut felt numerals if you have them, or even create numerals the same way we made felt letters of the alphabet. The sticky back keeps the foam numerals in place, while the felt circles can be changed out for squares, triangles or other shapes.
You can easily make a felt board with our simple tutorial. Or simply place a large piece of felt on a table top or tray.
Then start the fun with your toddler or preschooler with this simple math activity!
How to make a simple graph:
1. Outline the graph with strips of brown felt
2. Place self-adhesive foam numerals or felt numerals vertically.
3. Place felt shapes horizontally.
We kept the graph simple but you can add vertical and horizontal lines to create columns and rows to guide the placement of the circles if preferred.
This is a simple graph with colorful shapes cut from felt.
