Sewn Felt Geometric Shapes – Catch, Hop Scotch & Matching (colors too!)
1)Print Shapes Templates onto Cardstock 2) Cut out 3) Trace Templates onto Craft Felt 4) Cut shapes out of Craft Felt 5)Sew two layers, same shape, together so that the finished product is two sheets of felt sewn together in the desired shape. Optional to use a batting of layer in between.
- Quick sewing suggestion: Use two different colors for front and back.
- Optional: Stack 2,3,4 sheets of craft felt together at the same time. Using a good pair of newly sharpened scissors, cut the shape out at one time. This way, with the extra felt pieces can be used for other purposes later on, or for a matching game.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, if you read my last few posts, here I go again!
I made these shapes for her second birthday. We play chase carrying her geometric shape and we say, “Grrrr give me back my Green Tree!”. Upon Capture, a good old fashioned tickling is in store. As she got better with her shapes, I would point at the Geometric Shape Poster I created, my inspiration for this idea, and ask her to get the one I was pointing at. Then, and only then, would I chase her.
Now, that we have reached 3, we have progressed to shape matching. We matched the circle to the doorknob, the drum. The rectangle to the door. When she is in the mood, she takes pictures of her finds.
Lastly, we have added hop scotching across the shapes. Why Not?
