Flannel Friday Roundup - January 8, 2016

It's the first roundup of 2016! I hope everyone had a great December and is ready for what the new year will bring.

First up, it's Lauren with Dinosaur, Dinosaur, a redo of the classic "Little Mouse". What door is he behind? Can you guess? ROAR!!!

Wendy has made a great number of awesome flannels to start the year off with a bang! 
Cowboy needs help getting dressed! Can you come to his rescue? Pete the Cat and his Four Groovy Buttons are back to help us count down to our belly buttons. Are you hungry for some pie? You will be after you see this delicious rendition of "Little Mouse". Lastly, make some veggie soup for these cold winter days.

Thank you for ringing in the new year right with Flannel Friday!

Flannel Friday - A Felt Advent Calendar

Can you believe that this is the last Flannel Friday of the year?! Neither can I!

This project is something that I made for my daughter, actually. It's not perfect, but it's been fun planning it out. She's a very active toddler, so I gave her a Christmas tree of her own to play with. 

I bought a large sheet of green felt and used 3M strips to tape it on her door. I used washi tape for the outline of the tree and base (though I did have to go back and glue the washi tape down because it wasn't sticky enough to stay on the tree). The ornaments are shapes I traced from her shape sorter set and the numbers are glitter glue. I've been giving her one ornament a day. Though they're not pictured on the tree, the last five days will be yellow stars. And as you can see she has already lost poor day ten, a green triangle to match days eight and nine, which all together make a Christmas tree of their own.


Mary from Miss Mary Liberry is hosting the roundup this week.

Flannel Friday - The Gingerbread Man

It's been a loooooong time since I've done a Flannel Friday, but I really liked this Gingerbread Man song I found on PreschoolEducation.com. It's a nice and easy rhyme, and you can change the animals, add characters, etc. The template came from MakingLearningFun.com. I colored them in, laminated them, cut them out, and placed a magnet on the back.


The Gingerbread Man
Sung to: "Wheels on the Bus"
The gingerbread man ran through the town,
Through the town, through the town.
The gingerbread man ran through the town,
"You'll never catch me."

He ran away from a cow,
from a cow, from a cow
He ran away from a cow,
"You'll never catch me."

He ran away from a sheep,
from a sheep, from a sheep
He ran away from a sheep
"You'll never catch me."

He ran away from a dog,
from a dog, from a dog
He ran away from a dog,
"You'll never catch me."

Then he came to a fox,
To a fox, to a fox
The fox said,
"You can trust me"
Then he ate him, yes siree.

The roundup for this week can be found on my blog here.

Flannel Friday Roundup: December 4


It's Flannel Friday: Winter Extravaganza time! These submissions are perfect for a cold winter's day.

First up is first-timer Wendy! She has made a blog, Flannel Board Fun, just so she could participate in Flannel Friday. Her Five Little Snowmen Fat is just one of the crazy cute flannels on her blog. Welcome to the club, Wendy!

Get into the Christmas spirit with April at Storytime Ukelele. She has her felt version of It Must Be Santa paired with the chords and lyrics to the song. Ho, ho, ho!

These Five Little Snowmen are in desperate need of something cold! Hop on over to Kate's blog, Felt Board Magic, to see what their fate is (spoiler alert: SNOW!)

Kate has also decorated a Christmas tree for us! The Lights on the Tree are beautiful indeed! 

In an Inspired by Flannel Friday post, Jen has made Five Little Snowmen and even included a template for us (that she made herself!) on her blog, Adventures in Storytime.

Kathryn from Fun with Friends at Storytime has turned her Christmas tree into an interactive play board for her children's section. What a fun way to keep kids busy when there are no storytimes!

Miss Mary Liberry has made a triumphant comeback with Froggy Gets Dressed. Side note: she made us guess what it was and I got it correct. Not bragging or anything...

In other comeback news, I have my first flannel in a long time, too. It's The Gingerbread Man told with an easy-to-remember rhyme.

If you're feeling too chilly, warm up with Amy's Itsy Bitsy Monkey on her blog One Little Librarian. It is adorable and I can't wait to use it for Chinese New Year in 2016.

Flannel Friday Roundup - October 2, 2015

It's Flannel Friday? I'm still not sure, so let's ask Cookie Monster and Tom Hiddleston.


Alright, there's our answer. So on with the show!

It's October (finally)! You know what that means? Fall! Pumpkins! HALLOWEEN! Kathryn at Fun with Friends at Storytime helps us choose what costumes to wear with her Five Little Jack-o-Lanterns Shining Bright.

Shawn at Read, Rhyme, and Sing was inspired to make a Mr. Potato Head set by another Flannel Friday post. She even created a clever rhyme to help children with parts of the body.

Nikki at heytherelibrary is looking for her Little Cat who fell asleep under a hat. Can you guess where Little Cat is?

Laura at Library Lalaland and I have something in common: our first flannel was Five Little Monkeys Swinging in a Tree! And she's right, this one never fails to get the crowd going.

Time for a Flashback Friday (that's a thing, right?). The last time I hosted, Melissa at Mel's Desk debuted her first Meeow set. This week she has more pieces: more Meeow!

Jaime at Miss Jaime's Library Journeys has been hard at work making a Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons set. I love the idea of using Velcro on the buttons to help them keep the shirt closed. Good thinking, Jaime!

Jane at Piper Loves the Library has started a yoga storytime program called Yoga for Two. She's even managed to work in some flannel board fun!

Lastly, Nancy asked if I would post pictures of her imaginative and fun Shadow Children at Play. They are just too cute!

Next week is our Fall and Halloween Extravaganza! It will be hosted by Lisa at Libraryland.
