If you haven't used If You Give a Mouse a Cookie before, it is a great example of a circular story. I made the pieces small enough so I could fit multiple on top of a 10-inch pizza box. My goal is for the kids to see if this happens, then this will happen (or that the mouse and the cookie are both on the board at the same time.) I couldn't find any patterns so I drew my own (warning-parts are not to scale, but I am okay with that). The pieces are all cut out of felt and details are done with puffy paint. For the mirror, I added silver glitter glue
I added in a little early literacy by writing the color names on the crayons.
I was running behind on writing this post this week so the paint on my flannel pieces is still wet. The story book couldn't be moved, but I took a picture of it anyways. To make it look like an actual book, I tried to draw Pigeon with blue puffy paint (it kind of looks like a cross between Pigeon and a blue dog to me.)
