For over 30 years Betty Lukens, Inc. has been creating quality felt visuals.
Best known for our Through the Bible Felt Sets, which continue to be shipped and used all around the world, is a valuable teaching resource. With over 600 figures and objects, this is the most complete Bible felt set available. Our focus is on providing an interactive teaching tool that helps parents, grandparents, teachers and missionaries bring the Bible to life. Bright and colorful Bible stories in felt are eye catching and appealing to captivate an audience. The Bible story manual with over 180 stories is a wonderful guide and teaching resource. The Through the Bible in Felt manual covers both the Old and New Testament which allows for a strong foundation in Biblical teachings and principles.
Our Learning Fun with Felt line includes over 30 sets to inspire children's creativity. With the moveable pieces and personal-sized play boards, they can engage in imaginative play by arranging and rearranging the pre-cut felt pieces over and over again. Each time they create new and exciting stories as they experience the fun and magic of felt and leaves a lasting impression.
Testimonial for Teaching with Felts
A wonderful recommendation for using our Bible felts has come to us through a user of the Preschool Bible Curriculum ABCJesusLovesMe.com and we just think that she says it best for how valuable teaching with the felts can be:
"...You suggested the felt by Betty Lukens and I took you up on that. I just bought it a couple of months ago and when I opened it I was thoroughly impressed with the quality. The colors are vibrant and the pieces engaging. We've only been doing Bible felt for a few weeks now but it is something all my children (ages 8 down to 2 years) all look forward to doing. I've long struggled with keeping my children's attention with Bible stories and this has been it!
Each Monday, I tell the story with felt. On Tues. my 8-year old uses the felt and tells us all the story in her own words, and each day the next child in birth order tell the story to the rest of us, as best they can. Then they are allowed to play with the pieces for a short time (supervised, at the table).
Again, I thank you for the valuable recommendation. The price is well worth it and pays itself over more times than I can count. :)" - Christin via www.abcjesuslovesme.com/

We have found over the years that a helpful way to cut out the felts are to do a fast rough cut around the pieces and place them in the file system, then as you go to tell your stories pull the pieces you need and do a fine cut around those pieces.
Or many people make a fun project of it by having a cutting party and have each person cut out a page. It can be turned in to a fun time of fellowship and a useful project.
Our felts are durable and washable so that they can be enjoyed for many years to come. All our products are manufactured right here in the US of the highest quality 100% polyester felt.
