Airplanes Flying Away!

Up, up and away with Five Little Airplanes! We played 'Which One Flew Away?' after we did the rhyme. I had one little guy that exclaimed when I put the airplanes on the board, "There's a honey mustard plane!"  That's why I love doing preschool storytime. Airplanes are so much Fun with Friends at Storytime.

Kisses for Valentine's Day

Here's an oldie but goodie for Valentine's Day. I found this rhyme years ago on Story Time Secret's blog. I decided to make some smoochy lips and add some kissing sounds as I say the rhyme! Here's a printable doc of Five Little Kisses.
Blowing kisses is a lot of Fun with Friends at Storytime!

Babies in a Stroller going for a Ride!

Oh my! I just love my sweet babies riding in the giant stroller! These little cuties make me smile. I have a rhyme I made up to justify making this set and we will be using them this month at storytime.
I have several different posts about babies HERE,but this is the first time having them in a stroller with different weather conditions! They turned out better than I had hoped which is always a good thing.  I used a Google image that I deconstructed and tweaked a little for the babies and I loosely adapted a stroller image to make my own pattern (free hand cut out) stroller with diecut circle wheels. Babies are so much Fun with Friends at Storytime!

Halloween Babies

Last year I made a large set of babies and blankets to play a Peek-a-Boo game with our youngest storytimers.  It was a big hit! Here's the link Peek-a-Boo Baby!   So this year I made a new set and a new rhyme for Halloween. These make me smile!!

Trick or Treat Peek-a-boo Babies

By Kathryn Roach (10/2018)

Trick or Treat!
Look and See.
Someone is knocking.
Who can it be?

We had used Frankenbaby last year and he sort of was the inspiration for Halloween babies. We are using felt sheets with a large sequin 'doorknob' to hide the babies and then we'll say the rhyme and the magic happens! LOL!   Babies and Peek-a-boo are a lot of Fun with Friends at Storytime!

Firetruck File Folder!

I have already shared my 10 Firetrucks HERE but I finally got the file folder version done last week!! I cut out the truck shape and added the tires and ladders before I laminated it. I hot glued on the sequins for the flashing light. Then I just stacked the color pages and we're set! Firetrucks are so much Fun with Friends at Storytime!

Marching Elephants

We recently did an elephant theme for storytime and I wanted a new flannelboard set! I have shared my circus elephants HERE and I also made my own set of 5 Elephants in the Tub but that just wasn't enough! LOL! I made a new set of 10 elephants marching trunk to tail.  Elephant Counting. This rhyme gives us an opportunity to talk about 'first' and 'last'.  We really enjoyed counting to 10 and then, subtracting and counting backwards to 0.

Beary Fun!

Fall is upon us and a really fun theme is 'Bears!' I've posted about bears before...Here. But I thought I'd share a fun version of the Little Mouse hiding game with a bear.
Here's a link for the rhyme/instructions for Where Is Bear Sleeping?  The bear is a traced bear on Pellon and the 'caves' are easily cut out 2 at a time from different colored felt. This fun peek-a-boo game never gets old with preschoolers! Yay!!
Fun with Friends at Storytime is
'Beary' Fun!!
