Felt Board Story Bag

Today is a rainy and gloomy day. Here's a project that can help you make the best of staying inside!

Find a canvas grocery bag to transform into your felt board story bag.

Find a piece of cardboard and cut it down to fit your canvas bag. Use whole sheets and scraps of felt to design a scene for your story bag.

Glue a piece of blue felt (the sky) onto your cardboard. The piece I used was 8 1/2" x 11".

Glue green felt (grass) onto your scene (you can choose a different scene, this is just what I thought would be most useful to me).

Using hot glue, glue your scene/background onto your canvas grocery bag.

You can make animals or objects of any kind to use with your felt board story bag. The possibilities are endless!

You can use the animals you make to sing songs (For example, Six Little Ducks).

The animals you make can be used to help tell a familiar or made up story.

  1. I like the idea of using a bag! I have done it inside a pocket folder!
