weekend project: a 3-D felt puzzle for kids!

This might be the coolest felt puzzle I've seen! And, guess what?! They were just bird houses before we turned them around! With a little bit of felt and velcro, they've been transformed into something super colorful and fun for your kids to play with over and over again. They remind me of a cross between paper dolls and felt boards, and I love it. Here's how to make your very own...

Here's how...
1. Turn the birdhouse face down onto felt, and loosely trace whatever section you'd like (sails, windows, flags, etc.)
2. Cut out with scissors.
3. Stick velcro onto back of the felt and onto the birdhouse so they line up when placed together.

Then, you can take the pieces off for a fun and interactive game for little ones. And, when not in use, it serves as colorful decor for their room!

These are super easy to make, and your kids can help, too! You can also make them and give them as gifts, OR let it be a fun birthday party activity that the kids can make and then take home afterwards.
