This was a special request project! My little guy asked me to make him something (I guess one too many sister projects!). When I asked him what he wanted he requested trucks! That’s what I get for asking.
So I took this as an opportunity to make a quick felt board. We haven’t done a felt project yet, and I’ve seen some tempting projects. To make it even better, I had felt on hand.
He picked out his favorite trucks and I whipped out some drawings. I’m including copies for you. I used a straight edge, but these are freehand. They worked great for us! Here is the Dump Truck, Bulldozer, Tanker/Semi
Now it’s up to you. I know for my almost-three-year-old, craft glue was not going to cut it. He feels the need to try and pull things apart. So I chose to sew mine together.
Don’t judge my stitching too harshly… I had a toddler clinging to my elbow while I did this, BEGGING me to hand them over. Needless to say, I zipped these out super fast. Even with careful stitching, though, this is a fast project.
Use our templates or make your own. These are fast and easy, and now all you need is a felt board!
Unexpected benefit: this turned into a fun educational activity! All on his own he got out his trucks and started showing me ‘big’ and ‘small’ with the felt cars, counting wheels, and talking colors. I felt like I had found the super toy!
Do you have a favorite felt board project? I would love to see it! Let us know in the comments below.
