This is only our second attempt at creating our own felt board stories. Technically, I should call it a "flannel board" since we changed our felt board background from felt fabric to flannel fabric. I bought the flannel fabric on sale for $2 at Jo Ann Fabric and Craft Store. Since our upcoming theme is the letter U for Umbrella, I saw an adorable poem here and decided to make our own felt umbrellas to go with our upcoming theme.
Five umbrellas stood by the back door, The red one went outside, then there were four Four umbrellas, pretty as could be The orange one went outside, then there were three Three umbrellas with nothing to do The green one went outside, then there were two Two umbrellas not having much fun The yellow went outside, then there was one Just one umbrella alone in the hall, The purple one went outside, and that was all!
So after reading this blog, we decided to make our own sensory glitter bottles to use when we need help calming down. We had fun making the Glitter bottle, and even more fun watching the "pretty water."
We used a bottle of Smart Water, the entire bottle of glitter glue, the entire bottle of glitter, and the tacky glue to secure the lid on the bottle. Everything but the water bottle purchased at Michael's for less than $10.
