DIY Felt Tablet Picture Board by Laura Murray

Smart phone and tablets are all the rage these days, especially with kids. So why not have your little ones make their very own felt tablet picture board which they can use to create countless patterns, pictures and stories simly by layering fun felt shapes! It’ll get them away from the screens and using their imaginations, plus it’s great use for any felt scraps you may have lying around!

What you’ll need:
* 1 black piece of felt – A4 size
* 1 white piece of felt – A4 size
* 1 coloured piece of felt – A4 size (for the backing)
* Various different coloured scraps or small pieces of felt
* Scissors
* A4 card stock
* White craft glue
* (optional) Embroidery thread & needle

Start by cutting a piece of black felt in half and rounding off it’s corners. Then take half of a white piece and cut it to size for the ‘screen’.

Cut some bright coloured felt square buttons for below the screen.

You can either use craft glue to attach the felt pieces to the black base or, if feeling a little adventurous, stitch a simple line of running stitch in similar coloured thread.

Cover the back of the black piece with craft glue, stick it to the piece of card stock and cut off the excess. Then glue the back of the card stock to your piece of coloured stock and trim off the excess.

Now it’s time to cut some fun shapes from the colourful felt scraps! Abstract shapes are great for building patterns while simple trees, flowers, clouds and people can inspire pictures and unique stories.
