I am a bit crazy about felt, and felt busy boxes are just so fun! Today I’m sharing this fun idea: friendly felt monsters! Mix and match and create all kinds of friendly monsters! Have you seen this Felt Busy Box Ebook yet? 14 ideas with templates, check it out!
You will need:
– a variety of colours of felt
– googly eyes
Cut different shapes for bodies, legs, arms, eyes, mouths, noses etc.
Add these to a small plastic(or cardboard) box and line the lid with Felt. Let your child create monsters as he/she pleases! Remember this is open-ended play, so, a mouth can become a nose, an arm can become an antenna, anything goes! The more creative the better!
Your child can name his monsters, makeup stories and have fun with a few pieces of felt!
