Music felt board - PDF pattern

Start teaching your kids music with a little game. It's easier for kids to learn something if they can manipulate and feel some items. For this reason I made a felt board with detachable note, with a treble clef and staff.


Activities to make with kids:
1. Talk about music notions: the staff, the treble clef, the notes.
2. Explain how to put the notes: on the lines or between the lines.
3. Count the notes.
4. Sort them by colors. 
5. Invent a song about a bird.
6. Play with detachable pieces: the bird, the sun, the clouds.

Frozen pieces

I made these pieces for a banner. For a girl who loves Frozen movie. I used colorful felt in assorted colors: dark and light blue, 2 kinds of purple, magenta, white.


Each piece is almost 5.09 inches (15 cm) in height. Because they are thin, I sew them on another piece of felt - a snowflake.


I used some beads for Elsa's dress. The snowflakes are filled with polyester.
