Superhero Peg People

These are not only adorable, but easy to create. Simply purchase wooden peg people and paint them to resemble your child’s favorite superhero characters.

Superhero Peg PeopleCombination Felt Board/Chalkboard

To make this craft, buy a small chalkboard and press adhesive felt to the back. It took just an hour to snip a festive holiday scene from ribbon and craft felt.

Story Blocks

Story blocks are painted blocks (find plain wooden blocks HERE) with images of people, clothes, vehicles, buildings, objects, and nature. Invite your child to shake the bag and pour them out onto the floor. Build a story together or recount a memory using the pictures that are facing up on blocks as guides. To increase the life of your story blocks, seal with Glossy Mod Podge. For added fun, leave one side blank for your child to verbally fill in from their own imagination—like a free space!

No-Sew Felt Lollipops

Kids will smile at this unique addition to their play kitchen set. To make a set simply…

  1. Trace 2 felt circles of the same color.
  2. Hot glue a lollipop stick to one of the felt circles.
  3. Hot glue around the outside of the circle that has the stick attached and place the other felt circle on top.
  4. Repeat with other colors.
  5. Tie into a bunch with a pretty ribbon.

      I’m sorry. No tutorial. I didn’t use one either to link you to. I just “googled” pictures of superheroes, painted the pegs to look like them, and seal it with clear spray. I’m working on a Nativity now! I hope it comes out as cute as the Superheroes!
