Felt Storyboards

Materials

  1. Colorful pieces of felt or flannel fabric
  2. Shoe box lid or piece of strong cardboard
  3. Glue
  4. Sandpaper
  5. Photographs or magazine cutouts

Directions

Cut the piece of felt or flannel large enough to cover the inside of the box lid or over the piece of cardboard. Glue the fabric to the cardboard. Cut out pieces of felt in the shape of people, animals, trees, cars, spaceships, or whatever you want to tell a story about. Objects made of pieces of felt will naturally stick to the background fabric. If you want to use pictures from magazines or photographs, cut out the picture, then glue it to a piece of cardboard of the same shape. Glue sandpaper to the back so it will stick to the felt board. Tell a story. As each character is mentioned, attach it to the felt board. Or put a few shapes up on the board and ask your child to make up a story.
