365 Things to Make and Do: Felt Animals


I am so grateful to have found this book, especially after hearing "I'm bored" for the hundredth millionth time this summer. Granted, playing outside can lose its charms when the temperatures reach above the 90's. And having to come up with fun things to do indoors with three kids whose ages range from 5 to 12 is a challenge. So to keep my sanity, I pull out this book and some miscellaneous craft supplies and buy myself an hour or so of peace and quiet. Here, my two nieces are working on making some felt animals.


The book has very clear step by step instructions and wonderful pictures. It is great to watch the kids get involved in the process of making things.





And the results speak for themselves. Adorable, huh?

  2. Those are adorable! They look like they take just the right amount of effort -- not so little that they're not interesting, not so much that the kids get frustrated at not being able to finish.
