We had a major car trip coming up and I knew the kids needed something to entertain themselves while sitting in the car all day. We decided to make some monster felt boards to keep the kids
Cut out your monster's body. The genius of this activity and of monsters in general is you can't do it wrong. There is no right answer for what a monster looks like.
Now start cutting out different shapes to make hair, eyes, arms--whatever you think your monster should have.
Try out your monster to see if you like what you have. After our first monster creation, we decided our felt friend needed some more add-ons.
As a side note. I opted not to glue the background piece of felt to a hard surface for maximum portability. If you want a hard surface for your board, just glue a piece of felt approximately 9x12 onto a piece of cardboard. We decided to keep ours as is so it could be folded up and put into a ziplock bag.
