In our homeschool co-op we have a montessori class that we participate in each week for my son. The way the class works is the moms all help in creating and bringing in different activities for the class to rotate through. We like to have different seasonal activities, so this month I made a really fun snowflake felt board set for the kids. It has been a favorite since I brought it in. This would also be great as a winter busy bag idea. I have made several other seasonal flannel boards this past year and we have had so much fun with them at home, so I am glad the montessori class is enjoying this one that I made.
This was pretty simple to put together. I used a square of cardboard (from a pizza box lid) and hot glued some felt onto it. I cut the felt a little larger than the cardboard and hot glued the overlapping part to the back of the cardboard. I made the pieces small enough to fit into a gallon sized ziploc bag so it is transportable & easy to store.
For the snowflake cards- these were not something I created, but I got them from Making Learning Fun. They are a GREAT site for fun printable things for preschool and toddler aged kids. I used this site a lot when I taught preschool a few years back! I printed and laminated the cards. There is also a pattern for the pieces on their site. You can just use those to cut the white shapes out of felt.
