Let's make a DIY Felt Shape Activity!
1. Doodle some shapes onto paper. Then, cut them out. (I tried hard to include different shapes like triangles, circles, half circles, quarters of circles, rectangles, and squares. )
2. Trace your paper shapes onto felt and then cut out the shapes. (I never use regular paper scissors to cut felt. To get clean, straight lines, I always use scissors like these.)
3. Then, have a blast playing around and making different scenes on your felt board (for directions on how to make one, click here.)
Currently Chuck loves it when I tell him stories, so we've been using the shapes to create scenes for stories and different play scenarios. He has a tough time seeing how shapes can go together to create different objects. So I definitely help him out with the building. I'm hoping that in time he will start making lovely scenes of his own.
Who would have thought that a bunch of different shapes could stir up such imaginative play? (Honestly, I was surprised by how fun this activity ended up being.)
And if you enjoyed this activity, here are some other fun activities sure to encourage art and creativity!
