Our most recent story in the Preschool Book Club was Eric Carle’s The Mixed Up Chameleon. Because one of our favorite tools for extending play and learning is our felt board, I decided to create a felt set to go with the story! (This post contains affiliate links.

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!
We love felt! Be sure to check out our other felt projects on Buggy and Buddy:
