Following is a fun Craft for Kids and guest post by
Hayley at Welcome to the Mouse House… enjoy!!




I am so excited to be guest posting here at Frugal Girls!  My name is Hayley from Welcome to the Mouse House and I can’t wait to share my feature with you!

Welcome back to my Felt Board Tutorial Series!  Previously, we have discussed How to Make the Felt Board  and I have also given you a downloadable template for Making Felt People and Clothing .

Now, let’s move on to some more shapes dealing with the Weather.  These would not only be great just for home use, but also for teachers to use at school or even for parents to use in their homeschooling classrooms!

Let’s begin!

Download and Print your Weather Templates HERE   AND HERE  (there are two pages to download and print for the weather templates)

Same as with the Felt People, gather your supplies:

Supplies Needed:
  • Printed Templates
  • Scissors
  • Fabric Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Felt in various colors
  • Sharpie Markers in fun colors
  • Disappearing Marker (not necessary, but good to have!)

You will cut out all of your shapes from the templates I have provided above:

At this point, you can either use your markers to trace onto the felt or you can just cut, while holding the pattern piece:

Here is what the rainbow will look like after being cut out:

Now for the fun part… Painting!  You do NOT need to be an artist for this, trust me!  Have fun with it and remember that it is a toy for children and they won’t care if there are imperfections…. just enjoy the process!

Oh, and think back to grade school when we learned the colors of the rainbow:  ROYGBIV  (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet)

Let the fabric paint dry for at least 4 hours:

Continue on with the same method for all of your shapes.  Trace, cut, embellish!  You can either embellish with paint like I did with the cloud….

OR you can embellish with a colored Sharpie marker like I did with the sun!

LOOK!  I even added some “bling” to the snowflake!  Do whatever makes you happy!

I hope you have enjoyed this edition of my Felt Board Tutorial Series!  Next week, I will have more templates ready for you to download and print, including Sea Life and Scenery!  Please check out my blog  Welcome to the Mouse House for more details!  You can also find me on Facebook.

Thanks, Frugal Girls, for having me visit!
