5 Little Ducks

Yesterday was filled with lots of reading and quiet time.

Drew and Ispent some time at the felt board. One of the kids favorite books is 5 Little Ducks. Before we had the felt board I had made cardstock ducks that I sticky tacked to the wall and used. Recently I made some felt ducks. They really like these. Here is the link to the template I used to make the ducks. And if you don't have the book, here is the words to the story.
Head over to Ramblings of a Crazy Woman to see more great crafty ideas for your little one!

Hope Brodie is feeling much better today!!!! Talked to your Dad this morning. Hope he stays long enough to get better. His leg sure looks bad. Going to a movie tonight. New in Town. Do not have any desire to see Slumdog.
Love ya. Grandma

Hi Sara! I'm a redirect from the Tot Books page at 1+1+1=1.

Peering into your felted photo, it would seem you've simply hung some felt on dowels to serve as the backboard? If so, genius! on your part . . .care to elaborate?

Thanks! :)

Did you make your felt board, or buy one? I want to try to make one for the girls... I think they'd love it! Except it would probably take them five minutes to lose all the pieces!

Felt boards are such a great way to reinact a story!

Hi Angi and Nicki,
My sister in law made this for my boys for Christmas. She used a foam board and then covered it with felt. She hot glued the felt to the board on the back. Then I cut a piece of string and used packing tape to secure it to the back. I found this link showing pictures and giving directions on how to make your own. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for stopping by!
