It's no secret that I love felt.  If you've seen any of my quiet book posts or any of my other felt board activities, then you'll know how deep my felt obsession runs.  Of course, I had to make a dress up activity for the felt board at some point.  However, I didn't want to do the typical dress up doll or dress up bears.  I wanted something completely different.  Something that would really appeal to my boys.  Something cute and fun like the Mix and Match Monsters that I made, which J loves, so I came up with this dinosaur dress up play set.

Generally, I cut everything free hand when I'm working with felt, occasionally hot gluing pieces where needed.  This play set ended up being a great way to use up some of my felt scraps so that's always a bonus.  The pieces that I made include: a large green dinosaur, shirts, pants, a skirt, a ballerina tutu, a vest, hats, shoes, a pair of underwear, and some accessories like sunglasses, a tie, and a bow.

The pieces can be assembled to make some adorable dinosaurs such as this rockstar ballerina.

J loves this play set and quickly mastered the art of layering.  Shirt, underwear, and now some shoes.

Then some blue pants, which were then swapped for the orange ones shortly afterwards.

And then how about an upside down tutu?

As for K, he apparently had better things to do...
