My kids love playing with their pipe cleaner bugs. They fly and crawl them all over the house, but the other day Tyler said, “Mom, they (the bugs) need a place to live.” I was stumped. What had I started? So again we went to the craft box. Which I might add is in desperate need of a trip to the craft store. I had to find something that would pass for a house for creepy, but cute bugs. I found my felt stash and and went to work.
So again I pulled out the glue gun and scissors. First I had to make a flannel board.All you need is piece of cardboard, batting, and flannel .
Center the cardboard on the batting and start gluing. Make sure to pull the batting tight.
Then do the same with the flannel. Turn it over and you have a flannel board.
I asked my kids where, caterpillars, butterflies, and dragonflies live. This is what we came up with: apple tree, cloud, flowers, pond and lily pads.
Now the bugs have a place to live.
