Learning Our Colors - A Felt Board Game
A year or so ago I purchased a felt board to use at home with my son. We have gotten sporadic use out of it but I am hoping to use it more frequently. In anticipation of this I have cut out some felt pieces from cheap craft felt (I got 5 sheets for $1).
Our first new activity is the ice cream shop. We line up all of the cones that were cut out of tan felt along the middle of the board and then I sing "I scream, you scream, we all scream for _____ ice cream." The blank is filled in with a color that I have a corresponding "ice cream" cutout for.
The few times that we have played this my son has had fun searching for the color ice cream that I want. Sometimes he will make the ice cream one scoop but sometimes I am extra hungry and want a double scoop!
I have included the shapes that I used for your personal use. Please feel free to download and print them out.
