I've been meaning to write about this changeable felt playscape for weeks. This was a Christmas gift for all the kids and I'm pretty sure I'm just as excited about it as they are. The felt playscape is made from 100% wool and can be moved around to create a pond, ocean, river, island, or coastline for the base of endless creative play. The felt pieces work best when placed on a rug or a carpet, but are a soft base for little feet and hands.
To make this basic playscape that can be used to create both an island and a pond/ocean, you need to make 14 squares. You can make the squares whatever size you like, but we used 12x12 inches. Here are the following squares:
- 2 solid colored squares (one green, one blue)
- 4 blue cornered squares
- 4 green cornered squares
- 4 half green/half blue squares
The 4 photos below show each of the 14 squares you will create. Make sure you add some interesting shapes for a fun design.
Have a wonderful, creative-filled day!
