Here’s a free template to make your own felt set based on Eric Carle’s popular children’s book, The Mixed Up Chameleon! The felt pieces are super easy to make and perfect to use for retelling the story.

Recently we read the story, The Mixed Up Chameleon by Eric Carle. We even made a simple fine motor and counting game to go with it! Because the kids enjoyed the story so much, I decided to create a Mixed Up Chameleon felt set for the kids to use on our felt board. (If you don’t have a felt board, be sure to check out my simple tutorial for making your own!)
How to Make The Mixed Up Chameleon Felt Set
Use your printer to print out the pattern pieces onto paper. Cut them out.
Playing with the Felt Set
Often the kids start out by using the felt set to retell the story. They’ll usually have the book nearby as a reference as they’re playing.
As play progresses, the pieces usually become involved in a new story the kids make up all on their own!
