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.

Place the two white pieces of felt on top of each other and bind with a blanket stitch. This makes for a more stable and more durable mat.
Cut out all parts of the sewing pattern from the respective felt color - it will be easier to cut, if you attach the sewing pattern to the felt with adhesive tape.
For the bed, attach the pillows at the top and fasten the duvet onto the front. For aesthetic reasons sew on the back with a blanket stitch.
For the little monkeys: I always embroidered the faces and bellies first, then rolled up a piece of felt for the tail and attached it, and finally joined the two parts of the monkeys with a blanket stitch while filling them.
For the two grown-ups: after finishing their faces,I first joined the heads and then finished the clothes and bodies in one step using two needles at once :). I always attach the tail last, it can be attached earlier of course.
5 little monkeys jumping on the bed
one fell down and bumped his head
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said:
No more monkeys jumping on the bed!
4 little monkeys jumping on the bed...
