—> [Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. In celebration of the start of school and Labor Day, I’ve put together a sale (20% off) on my Etsy Shop.] <—
A couple of years ago, I started coming up with ideas for making a human body out of felt. I saw some on Etsy that were already put together, but they cost a fortune. So, I started experimenting with felt to see if I could make something more cost efficient. I’m excited to share this finished product with all of you, which can be yours for just $8 (supplies not included), normally $10, on my shop!
There are a total of 13 organs, and 15 bones in the pattern.
- Large Intestine
- Small Intestine
These organs are a part of 5 different systems that are shown below:
- Humerus (2)
- Radius/Ulna (2)
- Carpals, Metacarpals, and Phalanges (2)
- Pelvis and Spine
- Femur (2)
- Patella, Tibia, and Fibula (2)
- Tarsals, Metatarsals, and Phalanges (2)
These bones are shown below:
If you purchase a human body pattern, you will get an instant download. There are 5 different files: Materials & Directions, Diagrams & Colors, Organ Templates 1, Organ Templates 2, and Bone Templates. Once you download the zip file, you’ll be able to print each document and template to get started.
The material list is included, but you will have to purchase the supplies. The cost of those materials was around $20 (Shopping at Michael’s and Joann Fabrics in Minnesota). So total, this entire body will cost you less than $35 to make. Such a great deal, right?
After purchasing your materials, you can start reading the directions, taking one step at a time. When you get to the point of putting those parts together, I’ve got videos for you to watch on a Facebook group that I created specifically for people who purchase my felt body pattern. The videos are informative and help you understand how everything goes together. If you’ve purchased this pattern, go to the Felt Human Body Facebook group page, and ask to be a member. I will accept your request, and you will be able to view the videos, post photos, and ask questions.
As you can see, this is a great way to teach your children/students about the human body. This felt body can be used by kids of all ages, and with older children, they can even help you create the body, bones, and organs. Since the bones and organs are not glued onto the body, your child/student can place them where they go, or even put them on their own body!
This was such a fun thing to put together! As a former preschool teacher with a degree in elementary education, I love finding new and exciting ways to teach important skills and subjects. I hope that each of you who purchase this template will enjoy it to the fullest!
