Go to sleep baby!

I made this set of colored babies and beds for my church VBS preschool class but I intend to also use it for a Baby theme for storytime. I made up a little rhyme and will say it as I add the right color baby to the colored bed.  I do have 2 more baby posts HERE.

'Go to Sleep, Baby!'
Sleepy little baby, such a sleepyhead
Sweet dreams, go to sleep in you turquoise bed. 
(Hand out the babies to the kiddos and as you repeat the rhyme change the color bed for the kiddos to match on the flannelboard) I made 10 colors but you can always make more ...white, tan, grey, orange...























Karen Katz has some of the cutest books for babies and about babies that I've seen! My grandson loved her book, Counting Kisses as a bedtime book when he was a toddler. The illustrations are great and these are just right for the younger kiddos! Babies are so much Fun with Friends at Storytime!! There are other great flannelboard ideas on the Flannel Friday Roundup  Check out the wonderful resources on the Flannel Friday Pinterest Boards.

Being Thankful!

I'm thinking ahead for Thanksgiving and saw this post on Flannelboard Fun's page and she credited Mel's Desk . I loved it and wanted to make my own set. I made my pieces big and tweaked the bird and changed some of the colors but I really liked the sort of stained glass, primitive look of these pieces to use with the Raffi song, 'Thanks a Lot'.  I'll probably let the kiddos help me put the pieces on the board as we sing the song.  It's such a sweet song and I'm sure it will give us a lot to talk about too! I'm thankful for so much in my life and especially for Fun with Friends at Storytime!

Shoo Fly!

This is a theme we did 2 years ago but it was so much fun I'd love to do it again! There are several Flannel Friday Pinterest posts about flies and then there is the classic, 'I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly' but I made up an interactive rhyme so that the kids could buzz up to the flannel board. Here's the link for the rhyme, 'Colored Flies'.  I programmed a sheet of paper with a Google image of a fly and printed it on colored paper. I used my little laminator and then cut them out and added a piece of velcro to the back and we were set!
Get out your fly swatter and get ready for Fun with Friends at Storytime!
