Homemade Felt Board and Story/Song Shapes

This is our felt board area of the play room. The board is made from a piece of foam board (purchased from Dollar Tree by the poster boards) covered in felt and secured to the wall with Command strips (mirror clips would also work).

Below the board hangs a wall pocket organizer from Ikea, and beside it are some mirrors. My daughter loves to watch herself as she plays, so we have mirrors hanging near all the play spaces in her playroom.

I've also made her some felt pieces with which to act out some of her favorite finger play songs.




Five Little Ducks
Includes: 2 hills, 5 ducklings, Mama duck, Daddy duck

5 little ducks went out to play
Over the hills and far away


When the Mama duck said "quack, quack, quack"
4 little sucks came a-waddling back

Continue with 4- 3-2 ducks...

1 little duck went out to play
Over the hills and far away


When the Mama duck said "quack, quack, quack"
No little ducks came a-waddling back


But when the Daddy duck said, "QUACK, QUACK, QUACK..."


All the little ducks came a-waddling back!


5 Little Speckled Frogs
Includes: log, pool, 5 frogs, bug

5 little speckled frogs sitting on a speckled log
Eating the most delicious bugs (Yum! Yum!)
One jumped into the pool where it was nice and cool
Now there are 4 green speckled frogs (Glub! Glub!)

Continue with 4-3-2...

I freehanded the frogs, and I'm pretty proud that they came out vaguely resembling the creatures!


Up next, Margaret has requested "Wheels on the Bus" and "5 Little Monkeys and Mr. Alligator."

So adorable! I love your felt board! And I love the 5 little ducklings song, too! Your frog turned out great. Thanks for sharing at The Sunday Showcase.
