Travel Felt Boards

My 2 kids and I are going to embark on a plane trip next month from North Carolina to Washington state. 

It's going to be a loooong trip. I started looking on Pinterest for some ideas on how to possibly entertain two toddlers for that long. One idea I found and LOVED was a travel felt board. I found the idea and the tutorial at Miss Lovie



I have mixed feelings about this tutorial. But I think a lot of my troubles came from me cutting the tutorial in half because I wanted a smaller version. My suggestion is to play with the proportions and do what works for you. I had to add and snip and cut stuff off but in the end I'm happy with it and my 4-year-old boy is IN LOVE with it!

You may have noticed there are some funky Velcro tails on them. (Another problem I had with this tutorial). They're to make it so that it can stay standing like an easel, making it 2 sided. Which is nice. Just kinda funky looking. 


Here was my first attempt at a felt kit. A little pizza kit. My daughter loved it, but I also make a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom kit and that's the one my 4 year old went gaa gaa over. I'll post that one a little later.

I like that they're the right size for my littles now. They'll fit in they're backpacks & they'll be ready for the airplane ride!


Feel free to follow my Felt Fun Pinterest board for more ideas!!

  1. Fun! I was thinking about making a small felt board the other day. A travel board is awesome. I'll keep this in mind for our long car drive from Utah to Washington in July!

  2. AHHH! These are super cute! Love the colors and everything. The polka dots and whales-love! So glad you used my tutorial. I totally agree that the velcro tails are weird. I couldn't come up with a better solution at the time, but let me know if you do! I'd love to share yours on my blog/social media if you don't mind. I would link to you, of course. Let me know what you think!
