This felt board craft is not only fun, is can be used any time of the year, not just for holidays. Help your little ones learn about the changing of the seasons through play and discovery. Using this felt board craft, you can keep the background the same and change out the environment to reflect the weather during different parts of the year.
This project is great for anyone, no matter where you live. If you are in a warm climate where snow never falls, simply adjust the foliage and plant life pieces that you create to reflect that. If snow is a common occurrence for you and you don’t reach balmy temperatures, even in the middle of summer, simply adjust your accessories to account for that. Make this felt board to coincide with your seasons!
Start out with a piece of cardboard. I always save the back off of a writing pad when I’m finished with it, but cereal boxes work great too! Glue light blue felt onto the cardboard for your base background. The land will be great felt for warm months and white felt for snowy months. When you glue down the tree, only glue the top half. That way you can lift the bottom of the tree to change out the land.
Cut out pieces for the trees and flowers, rain and snow, apples and blossoms, you get the idea. You can even add animals and birds, whatever you want to do!
There’s a printable supply list and instructions below for this fun felt board craft!
I originally made this project for my monthly Chicago Tribune column.
