Felt Faces


Materials

  • Cardboard
  • Scissors
  • Felt
  • Glue
  • Pen or marker
  • Ziploc bag, diaper-wipe container, or small shoebox for storage

Directions

  1. Cut several oval shapes out of cardboard.
  2. Trace around these shapes on pieces of felt (since these will be faces, felt in a variety of skin colors is desirable, but brightly colored felt will work, too).
  3. Cut out the felt shapes you have traced and glue them to the cardboard ovals.
  4. Cut additional facial features from the felt in a variety of colors.
  5. These features should include eyes, noses, mouths (smiling and frowning), ears (with and without earrings, if you like), and hair.
  6. Older children may enjoy using additional features such as eyebrows, eyeglasses, mustaches, and so on.
  7. Place the felt pieces (oval face shapes and facial features) in a Ziploc bag, empty diaper-wipe container, or small shoebox.
  8. This makes a clean and quiet take-along game to play in the car or while you're waiting.
