About a year ago, my hubby brought home a set of felt squares similar to these. One problem: there wasn’t a ton of educational value to them and they were more focused on sensory development for touching and feeling different fabrics and textures. So, I set out to find a set that I thought would be better for us but, was quickly reminded that the only way to really find a custom learning tool is to MAKE one! That’s when Little Man and I set out to find the perfect colors and textures for our new squares set!
He picked tons of colors and styles. We chose soft textures, hard textures, rough and itchy textures, and of course, some really furry ones too and in all different colors! We shopped until we dropped and once we got home to put little brother down for a nap, we got to work!
Felt in 8 different colors
Sewing machine or needle and thread
A handful of different textured fabrics (vinyl, burlap, fur, fleece, leather, etc.)
