My friend Michelle has been telling me about her felt board making for over a month now- and after I saw this adorable game on this crafty kid site, I was finally convinced I needed to get on the bandwagon and try it out.
Yesterday, I dragged Ashleigh and Lauren out into the 35 degree weather to that store (that begins with a dubya) to buy some black felt for a background and to Michael's to buys some heavy duty poster board and felt pieces.
We came home and got to work.
Actually, I just got to work. I used our cookie cutters for Halloween shapes… and delivered ghosts, pumpkins and a scary cat to the girls. I printed off a witch silhouette from Martha and then free handed a tree and Frankenstein. The results were a hit:
(don't you love the witch's sassy purple boots?)
(that's a CA scarecrow wearing oversized sun glasses)
(Frankenstein with sunny side up eyes)
I leaned the poster board up against our giant white board so it would be more stable. The 22-month-old kept kicking it down. Because she's crazy.
But they all had fun with it Yea for felt boards!
Oh, did I fail to mention that I had a mocha driving my ambitious cutting spirit? Oops.
