Flannel Friday Round-Up

It's that time again-Flannel Friday time!  There is a lot of great ideas this week and a newbie poster!

Do you need a last minute Easter rhyme?  Stop by Kathryn at Fun with Friends at Storytime to see Filling My Easter Basket.  While she makes her basket with pellon, I thought it was a giant file folder at first (hint for someone who doesn't have pellon).  I also love to have flannelboards ready where we can match colors to the rhyme.

When plastic eggs go on clearance next week, you will want to pick some up to make egg maracas.  Lisa at Thrive After Three shows her set-up and instructions for making some.  As she mentions in her post, these would go great when paired with Press Here.

Are you planning a buggy or butterfly story time?  You will want to check out Lisa at Thrive After Three's version of Ten Little Caterpillars.  Not only has she created 10 different caterpillars, but you can lift the flap and see their butterfly.  It's pretty cool. 

You can never go wrong with a Boynton book in story time.  Bridget at What is Bridget Reading? shows off her version of 15 Animals. This flannelboard would fit right into a farm, Boynton, animal, or rhyming story time.

Everybody is going to want to go out and get a Ziploc bag for this one as it is awesome!  SLC Book Boy adapted What Did You Put in Your Pocket? by Beatrice Schenk de Regniers.  The combined mess at the end will make all of your kids ask to do it again!

As the flowers are just beginning to pop up in the Midwest, we are pulling out all of our spring and flower story times.  Kristie at Library Village has made Rainbow Flowers.  While they pair well with Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert, you can use them for a variety of color or flower activities.   

If you aren't familiar with Amy at The Show Me Librarian's STEAM activities for the kiddos, you definitely need to check them out.  She is now adding flannel to the process (and her story times)!  This week's entry is a felt pizza which can work well for fractions, shapes, pizza, or things that go in order like a process.

Yay! We have a newbie in the midst.  Amy at One Little Librarian has a great song where kids can feed the bunny prop.  It is great!  Stop by and welcome her.

Anne at So Tomorrow redid Going to the Pet Store and made it Going to the Sweet Shop.  She uses play food for the props and her ice cream cone will definitely make you smile!  

Finally, I have made my own version of building blocks inspired by some previous Flannel Friday posts.

That's it for this week. Lisa at Thrive After Three will have next week's round-up.
