In this fabric craft, turn a pizza box into a storyboard. Kids can bring the story to life with felt pictures.
What You'll Need:
- Unused medium-size pizza box
- Assorted colors of felt
- Blunt scissors
- Craft glue
- Trims (chenille stems, straw, yarn, etc.)
- Resealable plastic bags
How to Make Felt Storyboards:
Step 1: To make the storyboard background, cut two pieces of dark-colored felt to fit the inside of the top and bottom of the pizza box.
Step 2: Apply a layer of glue to the inside top and bottom of the box. Place both felt background pieces down in the box over the glue. Let the glue dry completely.
Step 3: Using assorted colors of felt, cut out felt pieces to make a picture. For example, if you were telling the story of "The Three Little Pigs," you would need three pig cutouts, one wolf cutout, and three house cutouts.
Step 4: Draw features on the pieces with markers. Draw the eyes, noses, and mouths on the pigs. Glue a small piece of curled chenille stem for the tail, and glue on cutout felt overalls. Draw in the eyes, nose, mouth, and teeth on the wolf.
Step 5: Decorate each house with markers, felt, and other trims. Glue or draw straw on one house, some twigs on another house, and red felt bricks on the last house.
Step 6: Place your pieces on the felt background to tell your story. When you're done playing with the storyboard, store each set of pieces in a plastic bag and place the bags in your pizza box.
