Soon after I posted my felt board tutorial last week, I received the most lovely package from Karen at www.funfelt.com. At FunFelt, they have an amazing selection of felt boards, felt books and felt shapes that are wonderful for storytelling, home education, keeping chore charts, etc.
The package that we received included two wonderful sets of felt stories.
Alex’s set was Aesop’s Fables. It came precut, assembled and included an audio CD as well as a booklet so the child or parent can read the stories aloud as the felt scenes are used. We instantly fell in love!
The book is bound with 3 rings and with each turn of the page, you discover lovely new scenes that serve as backdrops for several stories each.
Just look at the lovely detail and adorable creatures!
Opposite each scene, you’ll find a pocket that includes the felt cutouts of people, animals and objects that help tell the fables.
Don’t you just love all the detail? Wow!
Elliott received a slightly different type of felt book and the Itsy Bitsy Spider collection. It came in a tidy little zip pouch with a pocket to hold the felt pieces and a booklet with a couple of spider stories to tell in addition to the classic Itsy Bitsy that we all know and love.
The little creatures are friendly and appealing and the book can stand up or be flat in a lap for long car rides and such.
I look very forward to more peaceful road trips with these in tow. Elliott has just never been a good car ride kind of kid, so peace in the car is priceless to us!
The kids even took their felt sets with them to enjoy in the leaf piles this weekend! It made for such a lovely afternoon.
Now…this is where you come in!
