Fuzzy Felt Story Telling

Visual ways of telling stories are great for all ages.  Fuzzy Felt is especially good as the children can play with the pieces after you have told the story and recreate the events for themselves.  The great thing is that the felt figures will stick to the felt background so you will be able to hold your felt board upright as you tell the story, making it easy for everyone to see.

You will need: A board or piece of cardboard, felt sheets, scissors, glue

Cover a board with a large felt sheet (use glue or staples) to make a ‘background’ board.

Cut simple figures out of felt to help you to tell the story.  Here are some examples to give you an idea…

You can also make mini fuzzy felt boxes by sticking some felt to the inside of a sandwich box lid and then keeping small fuzzy felt pieces inside the box.  See here for more on this.
