I’m Kate McKnight, the author of Felt Board Magic and designer of the felt board sets published by Felt Board Magic. I’m so glad you found me here.
I have been designing, creating and selling felt board sets from my home in Armidale, a small country town in Australia since 2012. Each and every felt set was individually hand crafted by me. As my designs became more professional and grew in popularity, I discovered that I could not meet the demand. So I created Felt Board Magic to publish and sell the patterns for the felt sets I designed, allowing many more people to enjoy the felt sets than I could possibly have made myself.
I have a Master’s degree in children’s librarianship from Charles Sturt University, Australia and tertiary qualifications in early childhood education and special education.
I believe every child should have the opportunity to reach their full potential and that parents, early childhood educators, teachers and children’s librarians are the most significant force for learning in a young child’s life. Children learn best when engaged in meaningful, interactive multi-sensory exploration, discovery and imaginative play.
The felt board designs published by Felt Board Magic produce beautiful resources that stimulate creativity, promote hands-on-discovery, encourage social interaction, teach fine and gross motor skills, and develop early language, literacy and numeracy skills. I hope you enjoy using them with children in your life.
