Build a House

Time: 10:24

You will need:
  • Wood, plastic or sturdy cardboard for the felt board
  • Piece of felt that is larger than the board
  • Masking tape
  • Variety of felt colours
Instructions:
  1. Lay the board on top of the large piece of felt
  2. Fold the edges of the felt over the board, one at a time, and tape securely to the board using wide masking tape
  3. Pull gently on the fabric as you tape it down to maintain a smooth surface on the felt board side
  4. The felt board works best if it is positioned at an angle to support the felt cut-outs
  5. Cut out different shapes that can be used to build a house
