On the back side I made a play felt tree for the kids to decorate over and over. I even had them cut out the shapes of the felt ornaments themselves using cookie cutters and chalk to trace. You can of course do it yourself and make them much more elaborate.
I first saw this idea here at I can Teach My Child
You will need some green felt for the tree, and other colors for the decorations on the back, needle and thread, chalk, ruler, scissors, felt decorative stickers, and a sharpie. I like to use a rotary cutter and cutting mat with ruler but you don't have to by any means.
The first step is to measure out your tree size. Cut out a square that size and fold it in half. Now take your chalk and draw the outline of half a tree since your fabric is folded in half. Cut along that line. You should have something like the photo below.
Now use your ruler to mark out your squares using chalk. I marked in each square how many pockets fit on each row.
