A FELT WEATHER BOARD


One of my favorite activities for little ones these days is doing a little daily weather board. I love felt boards in general and wanted to create a simple child-led activity for them to observe the weather for each day. I made this one from wool felt (it's stronger and will hold up better with all the little hands) and an ikea picture frame. Want to make one? Here's how!

FELT WEATHER BOARD

>wool felt in a variety of colors
>craft glue
>scissors
>1 flat ikea picture frame (i used the kind that comes with plexiglass and just popped it out - you only need the frame and cardboard backing)

Here's what I did:

glue the cardboard backing from the picture frame onto a piece of felt with about 2" extra felt on each side. cut the corners of the felt off. wrap the felt around the sides of the cardboard and glue on back with your craft glue.

secure felt covered cardboard back inside picture frame.

cut out desired letters and glue to board. 

and lastly, cut out weather shapes.
