Little Red Hen Felt Board Fun

Look what I've been up to this past weekend!

In preparation for the Fun on the Farm workshop this coming Saturday, May 22, I made a felt board version of the classic story of The Little Red Hen!

I only glued the 'shoulder' part of the Hen's wing down, so that I can slip props like the sheaf of wheat, hoe or bread under her wing for her to 'hold'!

I've been experimenting with ways to draw the detail onto my felt pieces. (I'm working on a Three Bears set for which I actually embroidered the lines with backstitch - WAY too much work!) My permanent marker's line's were too thick, the ink from the Pilot Fineliner bled, but...a good old black ballpoint pen was just right!!

(you can see the ink 'bleeding' on her toes!)
All the ladies attending the workshop receives a set of four beautifully illustrated puzzles featuring farm animals, as well as everything you need to make your OWN Little Red Hen felt board set!

The Puzzle set!
The workshop consists of ideas for using the farm puzzle set as a starting point for FOUR WEEKS' WORTH OF ACTIVITIES to share with your toddler, and includes crafts, matching games, fun ideas for lunch time, field trips, rhymes and songs, a Bible lesson / craft and of course, some Felt Board Fun!

  1. This sounds like an awesome workshop. Your felt board is lovely and so detailed. I will keep in mind your advice about using a ballpoint pen to include any detail on felt pieces - thanks for sharing this tip.

    My daughter really enjoys creating all kinds of scenes with her felt boards and using them to create stories. We have a lot of fun with felt boards.


I love to hear from you and appreciate your comments! I will try my best to reply here to each comment promptly. Have a beauty-full day!
