Here in Canada winter is one of the most beautiful seasons. There is something very magical about the snow falling and piling up high. It is always so much fun to get outside and play in the snow. Last year, our daughter desperately wanted to have a sledding party for her 6th birthday party. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a lot of snow on the ground. Fortunately, there was just enough snow to sled. For the loot bags I made each child a simple snowy day felt board. These little boards are perfect for snowy or not-so-snowy winter days.
1. Cut cereal box into a rectangle, sized 5 1/2″ X 4″.
3. Slide the cereal box rectangle inside the felt envelope and stitch the opening closed…this is the felt board.
4. Cut out the snowy pieces to play with…snowy hill (white felt), 3 snowballs (white), sled (red), tree (green), sun (yellow).
5. Place the felt board and all the pieces inside the resealable plastic bag for storage.
This sweet little felt board is super portable, it can be popped in a mama’s purse or into a little one’s backpack. My daughters love pulling out this board and playing “snow day”. You really could make many more felt accessories to play with…snowman face pieces, birds, a little person, etc.
