One swap was for toddlers, and the other was for preschoolers. I made lacing cards out of recycled greeting cards for the toddlers, and clothespin color cards for the preschoolers.
Here is what I did:
- Went to Wal-Mart, got lost trying to find the craft section and then confused myself and bought exactly 10 times the amount of felt I actually needed. Plus foam stars that umm...yeah I didn't use those.
- I wanted to make color cards that were substantial to hold, but still very tactile. I felt that using the cardboard from a cereal box just was not enough. So I found a relatively thin box and cut it up. Instead of just coloring the cardboard, I added the felt in squares.
Originally I was going to make the cards as circles but that didn't end up working out.
Lots of squares! I used Modge Podge to glue the felt down.
Done!! My son loved his color card! What do you think?!
