Flip Flap Jack

So...we're planning for September and our first week's theme is Names. My children's librarian found this adorable post by Anne at So Tomorrow and asked me to make us a set. Flip Flap Jack is another version of Aiken Drum. Also, if you teach preschool and use Handwriting Without Tears you might like Flip Flap Jack as another version of Mat Man! The rhyme/song and pattern is in Ready to Go Storytimes: Fingerplays, Scripts, Patterns, Music and More by Gail Benton and Trisha Waichulaitis. Here's a great link with a video and the words for Flip Flap Jack.  Here's my version with added glitter and fabric paint.
His head was a pancake...
His body was a waffle...his bellybutton was a raspberry!

his legs were bacon...his feet were French toast (with 'brown sugar glitter')

and his name was Flip Flap Jack!

I think he's adorable ... mmmmmm and DELICIOUS!  I also found a fun song to sing with this theme on an older CD, Ralph's World. It's the Name Song!  Check out this youtube video of the song. So much silly fun.  We're having Fun with Friends at Storytime
