Productive waiting

Finding ways to entertain my kids has been a challenge while I finish gestating. This activity happened spontaneously the other day when they happened to be playing really well together in their room. I pulled out some felt play scenes someone had gifted us with from the dollar store. They were having a blast using them on the rug. So I impulsively went through my fabric stash and found this flannel and sewed a cover for their art easel. Then I went through my flanned and cut out pizza fixins to play with. It was a hit.

Master creatively turned his pizza into a face!
Stuntwoman decided abstract was more her gig!

I think it will be fun to add to ideas for this with shapes, flowers, bugs, more food play. The possiblities are endless. Any other ideas for felt play?
Now if I could just get on with delivering kid number 3, this waiting is driving me bonkers!

Back in the 1960's when I was little, our Sunday school lessons were felt on flannel, it was "flannelcraft" or something. The lesson was told putting the characters up on a flannel board. My fav was at Christmas, the nativity in flannel, I was awestruck. Yeah, I was easily entertained, what can I say, not much has changed.

I'm sure #3 is getting ready for the big arrival very soon.

What a fun idea! I am impressed of how you just whipped this up in the moment. I am not a sew-er.
