I'm going to make one of those felt play boards for my friend's toddler.  I plan on making a bunch of different pieces, some that are fun to play with now, some that will be educational, and some that he will "grow into."

Have any of you made something like this before?  Any pointers or ideas to share?  I'm going to do sets of pieces like people and clothes, letters, numbers, shapes.  Any other suggestions?

Maybe things so they can identify things... Like a face... They could tell you where the eyes go and stuff. Or shapes.

oh, wow, I forgot about those!  I should make one for my dorm room next year.   Wink

definitely animals.  go to easy to recognise ones.  I'd print out clip art or something along that line to use to trace.

hmmm...  I second the mr. potato head type face with eyes and nose and mouth and ears and such.  maybe foods?  apple, corn, etc...  just a thought.  maybe some other inanimate things such as a tree, clouds, flower, a sun, grass to go along the bottom, a bench...  some of those would be more for when they're older.

you can also include a large sized plastic zipper, some buttons with buttonholes and some shoelace, so he can learn how to use a zipper, button up, and tie shoelaces.
