Since October is just around the corner, this weekend I couldn't resist pulling out this Halloween-themed feltboard I made one year ago for my daughter.
Last year at this time she was a little too young for the board -- she didn't really recognize the shapes or know their meaning (other than the cat, since he looks like our Simon), and it took her no time at all to stretch the cat's tail and the witch's broom bristles. So I redid those two and put the board away for a later date.
This time around she could recognize and name almost all of the shapes, though Halloween still remains an abstract concept (if that) for this 3-year-old. One of the broom bristles has already been stretched, the owl has gone AWOL, and the fence is now curved instead of straight (an improvement, I think), but she loves playing a little each day with "Simon", the moon and her "bébé punkins".
