Step 1. Cut a piece of felt to fit the board. Glue in place with a glue gun.

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

Step 2. Cut out small felt shapes that can be placed on the mini felt board to create scenes and designs.

Step 3. Attach a resealable bag to the back of the felt board with duct tape or a glue gun.

  • This will hold the felt cut-outs your child can place on the mini felt board.
