Kayden's Imagination Station - Felt Cut-out Story Game
A friend of mine's son just broke his arm, and had to stay as still as possible for a week while the bone set and the swelling went down.
After school Troy and I sat down and cut out a felt game for him - but she got to colour and influence the proceedings as well.
It is a great, low cost idea for kids without broken arms too. Thise simple toy/game idea is better for kids than fully completed plastic toys. Actually, the simpler the forms, the better for developing kids' imaginations.
The kids can mix the parts - put wings on cars, or horses - whatever you happen to cut out.
If you don't find drawing by sight easy you can do what my mother did - who wasn't an artist. She traced. She is where I got this idea from - I loved it when she did it for me growing up as a kid.
