Travel with kids can be very rewarding. It's an opportunity to enjoy family time as you head to familiar destinations or explore new places.

But travel can also be stressful. Kids can easily grow impatient anticipating the end of the journey.

Games and activities such as this mini felt board can be packed into a tote bag to help entertain the kids. The number of activities you take along will depend on the length of the trip and the attention spans of the kids.

This mini felt board is just as much fun as our regular size felt board but its small size makes it perfect to take along for the kids when traveling.

It's also great for quiet time activities and stories at home or in the classroom. Felt board activities help build language skills as well as fine motor and creative skills.

All you need to make a mini felt board is a small plastic cutting board and some felt.

I like this cutting board because it's made of sturdy plastic and has a cut out handle which makes it easy to carry.

Cut the felt to fit the board and glue in place with a glue gun.

You can use more than one color to create separate sections for "land" and "sky" or "water".

Cut out small felt shapes that can be placed on the mini felt board to create scenes and designs.


A resealable bag attached to the back of the mini felt board will hold the felt pieces.

Attach a resealable bag to the back of the felt board with masking tape or a glue gun. This will hold the felt cut-outs your child can place on the mini felt board.
