GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
I had been wanting and researching felt boards for my son for a few months before I came across Betty Lukens Leaning Fun with Felt sets.
While researching felt boards, I was looking for:
- a board that was easy to store, transport and use.
- a set that included a number of pre-cut pieces that could be easily identified by my 18 month old, but would also grow with him (ex. various animals, people, trees, etc.)
- a set that offered many options for future pretend play and story telling
- a set that was reasonably priced
I must say the Learning Fun with Felt sets we were sent met all of the criteria. We were sent (click product name for description):
|1) Let's Go On A Safari 2) Sporty Kids 3) Forest Camping Adventure 4) The Four Seasons|
Each set comes with a 13" x 15" felt board, over 20 pre-cut pieces, and a plastic storage container with a handle that makes it very easy to store and transport.
There are over 30 different Fun with Felt options that are great for toddling children and beyond (you just may have to remove some of the smaller pieces for younger children).
While my son is too young to participate in advanced pretend play or to create his own stories, he is old enough to learn/identify each of the pre-cut pieces while placing them on the board.
We also enjoy using the felt board learning set during story time. Can you find the giraffe?
How about the bear?
What I love most about the Learning Fun with Felt board is currently they serve as a tool for object recognition, fine motor skills, and language development, but eventually they will serve as a tool for imaginative play and story telling.
I love that the felt boards don't have any bells or whistles or buttons, just simple to-the-point objects that tell a story with a little bit of your OWN imagination.
Not only does Betty Lukens offer Learning Fun with Felt sets, they also have a number of other products including various Educational and Inspirational sets. Betty Lukens is widely known for their quality Bible Felt Sets.
With Christmas quickly approaching I would highly recommend a Betty Lukens Learning Fun with Felt set for any young child on your list.
