Felting at Manchester Mega Mela 2014
Last year I did Rangooli patterns in felt - here are a few of the ones that were made by the children...
but it got so busy that this year I thought we'd do something a little bit quicker and the quickest activity I could think of was felt bangles.
The children picked their own colours and made something a little like this.
They sprinkled it with soapy water, pressing down gently (!) to make sure the water was distributed.
They rolled it a little on the bubble wrap.
Before rolling it between their hands until it was felted.
Another photo, this time with her Auntie's bangle too.
It was s good activity for all ages - the smallest bangle here was made by a 2 year old ( with a little help!).
It was good to see children I'd seen last year come back for more felting fun ....
....and last year!
