A felt board (also called a flannel board) is easy to make and provides mess-free fun and creativity.
Use either light or dark colored felt for the covering. It should be a color that can offset the felt colors used for the characters and shapes you place on the board.
- wood, plastic or sturdy cardboard for the felt board
- a piece of felt that is larger than the board
- masking tape
Lay the board on top of the felt.
Fold the edges of the felt over the board, one at a time, and tape securely to the board using wide masking tape.
Pull gently on the fabric as you tape it down to maintain a smooth surface on the felt board side.
The felt board works best if it is positioned at an angle to support the felt cut-outs.
Lean the board against a wall or chair. This felt board is sitting on an artist's easel.
