Crafts & Activities
A great felt board game. Play it with various toys they might receive for a birthday; a top; a toy car; a book, a cake, candles, a puppy, and so on, all made of felt. (Use felt pieces you may already have!) Let children memorize the objects on the felt board for a few minutes, then cover with a sheet. Ask children to name the items they remember. Little presents could be given out as awards for good memories.
(Tip: When "awarding" prizes, I always make sure that every child goes home with a prize! I had to do some quick thinking sometimes to come up with a reason for the prize...but they all left with that little prize and a smile on their face!
Pin the Tail on the Donkey
Make a big donkey for the felt board. Make felt tails, one for each child, with their names written on. Blindfold children one at a time and let them take turns "pinning" the tail on the donkey.
