Teachable Moment Review and Giveaway...

Looking for a fun learning toy that is perfect for QUIET play at home or in the car? Well, I have found it at this neat little Etsy shop...Teachable Moment Felt Board Stories.

A word from the creator about the creation:
"I make hand crafted flannel/felt board stories. They are a wonderful way for parents, preschool teachers, childcare providers, church day cares, Sunday School teachers and homeschoolers to enhance the literacy experience. There is something magical about the story coming alive through felt board pieces!These interactive stories are a great way to enhance story-telling time...perfect for keeping the attention of young children, children with ADHD or autism and encouraging children's imagination! They can be used in the school setting, used outside your home to entertain your child while at a restaurant or appointment, or just for fun! The possibilities are endless. The felt pieces are enhanced with glitter paint and wiggly eyes for that extra special touch! You will not find a better product around! I will make special custom items if you do not see what you need. Just let me know! Many of my felt stories and songs are cut from felt made from post consumer plastic products. Earth Friendly! The paint that we use is both acid free and non toxic so it is safe for little ones!I have been making them for over 10 years and have sold many on other sites.
I love making felt board stories and know there are a lot out there to choose from. You will not be disappointed (with Teachable Moment products)!
All sets are made from recycled felt and decorated with glitter fabric paint. My sets come with the detail you won't find in many of the other flannel board stories out there. I use only the highest quality felt and paints!"
Down By the Bay Felt Board Story:
Teachable Moment also carries hand-made felt boards. These are perfect for travel! They roll up and take up very little space and check out the one below...the back does double-duty providing your little one with hours of fun!
I also love this jungle theme felt board:
I had never even heard of this story, but it sounds too cute! Brown Bun, Brown Bun...the story of an Australian Hamburger:
The amazingly creative folks at Teachable Moment offered us 2 stories and felt board for review. You can bet A and D were both THRILLED with this review:) We chose two of our favorite stories...A picked The old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly and D picked Brown Bear, Brown Bear.
First up, A's choice: This set comes with an Old Lady, fly, spider, bird, cat, dog, goat, cow, horse, and a song card. A happens to think this story is absolutely hilarious when we're just singing it and adding images to it made it even funnier:) She loved making the Old Woman swallow each thing and then acting out the "chase" scenes inside her tummy. Too much fun!
D's choice: I must start with a little background...D is our youngest, 21 months, and a little different from his older sister in that when he decides to like a book he goes all out and only wants to hear that book over and over and over again for weeks. I could put the book anywhere on his massive bookshelf and he would find it. So was the story with Brown Bear, Brown Bear a few months ago, until, out of sheer desperation, I hid the book under the couch and Voila! Out of sight out of mind:) Out of mommy guilt, I let him choose the Brown Bear, Brown Bear felt story:) This set comes with a cat, dog, frog, bird, horse, sheep, duck, bear, fish, children, and adult. The story was not included, but that of course is no problem as I am sure every member of our family and probably our cul-de-sac knows the story by heart:) D LOVES it!!
I was very impressed with the quality and detail of the felt pieces. You can tell the creator really knows and loves what she is doing. The pieces were definitely put to the "toddler test" and passed with flying colors! The board is super cool too. I love the convenience of this set. We took it to the doctor's office the other day and the kid's weren't restless at all!!
