Here is a simple recycled project using an old picture frame to make a new felt board or white board.  These make great props for playing pretend school or nice playing tools for the younger children.


For the felt board, take the glass out of the picture frame. Lay the cardboard from the frame on some felt. Cut a piece of felt at least 1″ larger on all sides than the cardboard. Just place the cardboard back in the frame.

Your felt board is ready to go. Cut out some shapes and create stories.

Just take off the felt, put the laminated sheet in instead, put the frame back together and your white board is ready to use. Practice your handwriting, visual motor skills or play pretend school.
