I made a number of felt mats for well known songs, nursery rhymes and poems. Especially those children who grow up bilingually and whose mother tongue is not German, benefit from this tool.

The children can use the mats to recreate and internalise the songs and rhymes.

Fünf Fische und ein Hai

Things needed

Die fische schwimmen um den Hai herum


Place the two blue pieces of felt on top of each other and bind with a blanket stitch. This makes for a more stable and more durable mat.

Then cut out the shark and its fin, as well as the five fish twice each from the respective felt - it will be easier to cut, if you attach the sewing pattern to the felt with adhesive tape.

Sew on a pearl for the shark's eye, embroider its teeth and attach the pectoral fins.

For the fish, sew on the eyes, stitch the fins and sew on the sequins.

Join the shark parts and fish parts with a blanket stitch and stuff with fiberfill.

Five little fishies swimming out to sea
Teasing Mr. Shark "You can't catch me!"
Along came Mr. Shark as quiet as can be

Text German

5 kleine Fische, die schwammen im Meer - blubb, blubb, blubb, blubb
Da sagt der eine, ich kann nicht mehr - blubb, blubb, blubb blubb
Ich wär viel lieber in einem kleinen Teich - blubb, blubb, blubb blubb
hier gibt es Haie und die fressen mich gleich - blubb, blubb, blubb blubb
