This football busy book page is the next in our busy book series. I am loving these felt craft projects! You can see the shapes page and lion page if you have missed any of the series. This is also a part of Craft Lightning week where we are doing crafts that take 15 minutes or less all week. You can find even more fun quick and easy activities to keep your kids busy at the bottom of this page.
Supplies to make your own football busy book page:
Some links may be affiliate links which means a portion of your purchase will go to support this site.
- Stiff felt sheet (I used these large sheets cut in half)
- Felt scraps (I bought this bag of felt scraps to make all of my busy books) (in this case I had a large piece of brown felt that I used for the football)
- Football pattern page (print by clicking here)
- Hole punch
- Sewing machine
Cut out your pattern pieces and lay them out as they will appear once complete. Mark eight equally spaced holes with a ruler and a marker.
Punch a hole in the felt where each of those marks are. I used an industrial hole punch for this step.
Thread the shoelace through the holes as shown.
Sew just the ends of the football to the stiff felt sheet. Stop where the white pieces of felt are on the football. You want the child to be able to reach into the football to lace and unlace the string if desired. And that is it! This football busy book page is complete and ready for our book! Stay tuned all week as I post these busy book pages. I will wrap up the entire series next week with a few more pages and a post on assembling your book!
