Kids are going to love this DIY felt board snowman craft this winter. They can make winter scenes over several boards to tell a story.
Winter has well and truly settled in. If you are looking for an indoor activity on those cold, and rainy days, have kids create their own winter story with a DIY felt board.
Note: This project was originally created for the website Rusty and Rosy, however that website is now offline. I have moved all of my content over here.
Felt board snowman craft
- Cardboard (I used an insert from a box that had been delivered)
- Felt – in assorted colors
- Glue stick
- Duck tape
Step 1: Cover the front of the cardboard with glue. Place a sheet of felt over the top leaving a gap of about 2 inches at the bottom for a second color. Lay a second color at the bottom of the cardboard. Smooth the felt over the cardboard with your fingers.
Step 2: Turn the felt board over. Trim the corners of the felt and the length of the felt if necessary. Apply a strip of glue around the edge of the cardboard and fold the edges over, sticking them down as you go.
Using Duck tape, tape down the edges of the felt on the back.
Cut out a variety of shapes and winter-themed felt pieces so that the kids can create different winter scenes depending on where they are, or what the weather outside looks like.
Tip: Create two or three boards so that kids can create a scene and tell a story.
