I have been wanting a felt board for the kids, but all the boards I saw while searching the net seemed too flimsy for my, ummmm, active children, so I set out to make a very, very sturdy one.
I used one of Becky's large wooden cake boards. At first I thought it would be too heavy, but I don't want the kids carrying it around, I want it to stay where I put it, so the wooden board is perfect.
I bought blue and green felt to divide the board in two. I also bought spray adhesive. This worked great for securing the felt down---it also sprayed glue on a lot of other stuff at my table. I think next time I use adhesive spray I will do it in a box, like when we use spray paint.
The felt was very easy to affix with the spray glue. I divided the front into "sky and land" and then simply wrapped the overlapping felt around to the back and sprayed glue and secured it down. I think this feltboard was finished in under 20 minutes. I may finished off the back with colorful duct tape if it starts to loosen up.
