Sep3_FeltBoard_1_SM My husband has made a felt board and some felt sets for Anna about a year ago, but she was too young then to appreciate them. So we put them away and kind of forgot about them. She got a felt game when we were visiting in NJ and played a lot with that set there, but lost interest again when she came home. Seeing felt board activities on many blogs prompted me to pull out our felt board, and Anna immediately took to it. Her favorite set is a baby doll with clothes that she can change. Interestingly, she is very indifferent to real dolls, but she plays with a felt doll every day – putting her to bed, changing her clothes and asking for making something for her to eat. We start the new theme of seasons next week, and I am asking my husband to make four new sets of clothes for this doll – summer, spring, winter and fall. Oh, and big girl underwear – last year this doll was still wearing a diaper :)

How cute! Selena loves her felt board. I need to make or order some more fun sets for her.

Could your husband make some for us too:-). I'm just kidding!

I love felt board sets. Aren't they super?! I think they are such a fun way to learn and play too.

I love felt board sets but I have always bought mine from Etsy. It's great that your husband makes them!

Aren't those fun? And they make great travel toys because it packs up so small.

OMG, it's so awesome that your husband does these! And M really got into our flannel board when I brought it out a few months ago too - must be the age! I just posted about ours too (great minds think alike, right? :) ) Great post!

I'm impressed that Anna's dad made these sets for her! I'd love to see pictures of the seasons sets if he makes them. We use felt boards a lot in our house...

I love the idea of a felt board! They sound great for road trips.
