Colour Fun #10 - Teddy Dress-up



Colour Teddy Dress-up was inspired by this dress-up teddy at mama smiles blogspot.

I used a little wooden teddy puzzle as my template (a teddy cookie/play dough cutter could also work well). I then cut out tops and bottoms from a variety of colours and told Little One that we must dress teddy, because he is cold! 

This is the first felt toy that Little One has shown any genuine interest in, so I am thrilled! What I didn't realize, was how difficult it would be for him to place the t-shirt and shorts correctly onto the teddy. He tried hard, but I had to assist him with the placement, so this was good fine motor practice too.

Till next time.

PS. I'm linking this to Tot Tuesdays and Show and Tell.

This is such a fun idea and so easy! I've gotten several great ideas for color activities from your blog lately. Thanks so much!

This is adorable. What do you use to cut your felt? I used scissors before and it was really hard and turned out really bad. Any tips?

I love this idea! I will have to think of a way to use it with turkeys this month.
