I found the idea on Pinterest and followed the instructions here. I'm REALLY not crafty, but I can cut felt and puffy paint it, right?
Seriously, you don't even need me to tell you how to do this.
Maybe you're fancy and have a sewing machine - this would take almost no time if you do! I sewed it by hand and it still took very little time.
So here we go:
Find a circle size you like. Trace it on a bunch of felt. Cut out, pin, and sew together using a blanket stitch or modified blanket stitch (that's what I call "I didn't actually know what a blanket stitch was so I made it up and it kind of looked the same") or whatever you want. Then puffy paint the fraction shapes and let it dry!
Circles (can you find the puffy paint error? Also, if you look closely you can see that my stitching started out NOT so hot and got better as I progressed. But guess what? The kids don't care!)
Squares (look at how beautiful my 2's are! I'm kind of obsessed...)
And the triangles that I actually finished...
Repeat with square, triangle, and whatever other shapes you're inclined to try. I DO have 1/4 size triangles cut out but I never ended up sewing them together because I got distracted. They are still sitting in my Ikea sewing kit, pinned together and unloved. But they are purple. Some day I'll finish. But I've realized that sewing while nursing babies is probably a bad idea...
See how much she loves them?
Anyway, John Paul and Cecilia LOVE these. John Paul because he is maybe the biggest nerd any child has ever been. Cecilia because they are COLORS! They like putting them together and making patterns with them, and since they're felt they stick to the couch and the rug easily. They also like to line up the big shapes and jump from shape to shape.
