Felting

We have recently had lots of fun making felt - felt pictures, felt beads and felt balls - and, although you will need to gather a fair bit of equipment and the process is quite energetic, we think the rewards were really worth it!

Here is a cute idea for a Valentine's Day craft to do with your kids. Older kids will be able to produce a really pretty bag on their own; younger children may need some help, or you can adapt the craft to make it appropriate for their age.

Making Felt Pictures

Making felt is hard work but very satisfying - our children were thrilled with their creations, and enjoyed all aspects of the process! Younger children will need supervision, especially when the hot water is involved.
