What Led Up To This Picture?

 One of my goals for this year is to find more crafty activities for the girls.  I am not crafty so I have to be creative in how I accomplish that.  In doing so, I found Betty Lukens.  Betty Lukens has been manufacturing felt sets for over 30 years.  Their products are made here in the USA in Cotati, CA.
In trying to choose a product from their website, confusion set in.  I could not pick just one.  Finally, my husband told me to think like a 3 year old little girl - Princess!  Lyla had the opportunity to play with the Learning Fun With Felt - All Dressed Up! set.

At first, she was a little confused because the little girls were not "dolls."  I sat with her and showed her how to stand up the flannel board.  Then we put the little girls on it and I showed her how she could put the different outfits on them to dress them up.  Once she saw how the girls did not fall off the board and their outfits stayed on them while the board was standing, she was hooked.  She did lay down the board, though.
 As you can see, the set comes with several different outfits from casual to dressy.  Bina decided to join Lyla when she was playing with the set.  Good thing there were two little girls - one for each of them.  They eventually played with the little girls like they were actual dolls and started storytelling and playing make-believe.  It was sweet to see them sharing.  That's how the picture above came about.  They were hugging each other and I prayed for a shot.  They usually scramble when they see my camera coming.  I love to capture those moments.

The sets come in a plastic carrying case, which makes it easy to keep all of the outfits in one place.  Bible Felt Sets are another set that Betty Lukens sells.  The selection within the Bible Felt Sets is extensive, including Old Testament and New Testament backgrounds, and specialty boards.  Other topics include Science, Early Learning, Animals, Nature, Holidays, Seasons, and, of course, Princesses and Dress-Up.

  3. Hi Meredith,
    She does. Your kids will love these. The best part is that my 2-year old loves it too. If the Bible ones are anything like this one, you will love it! Thank you for stopping by. I enjoy seeing you back.

    Sincerely,
    Karina

  4. Hi Rosey,
    The felt is great. I actually had not come across felt since I was in school myself. They have some that I'm sure your son will enjoy. Let me know if you get some and how it works for you {or him actually}. I'd really love to know.
    Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. I really do appreciate seeing you back.

    Sincerely,
    Karina

  5. Ohh! I love these! I was thinking of these the other day, and didn't think anyone sold them! I use to love my Sunday School teacher using the felt boards and characters to tell stories about Jesus when I was little! Great pick, Karina! Now, if God would only bless with me with a little girl who would appreciate these!

  6. Hi Lucy,
    Well I am so glad that you were able to find a place that makes them. If the Bible ones are anything like this one, you will enjoy it. I wasn't sure if my daughter would like them because today she likes princess stuff and tomorrow she doesn't. God will bless you. Unfortunately for us it's on His watch.
    Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. I'm glad you appreciate my pick for this product. I always appreciate having you back.

    Sincerely,
    Karina
