Flannel Friday 12/02/16: It's Not That Cold Outside

IT'S SNOWING IT'S SNOWING IT'S SNOWING IT'S SNOWING!

Okay, maybe not right this very minute, but now that I'm in Colorado, I expect it to happen all the time. This is ski country, right?!

For this week's extra special Winter Extravaganza Flannel Friday, I made a flannel that can accompany a song I'll be using in a program in February.


It's Not That Cold Outside
(to the tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb)
I don't want to wear my coat, wear my coat, wear my coat
I don't want to wear my coat
It's not that cold outside.

Repeat with scarf, boots, mittens, and hat
Aaaa CHOOOOOoooo!

It can also be used for:

 Boots, Jacket, Scarf, and Hat
Sung to: “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes”
Boots, jacket, scarf, and hat,
Scarf and hat.
Boots, jacket, scarf, and hat,
Scarf and hat.
In wintertime we dress like that.
Boots, jacket, scarf, and hat,
Scarf and hat.

Wendy from Flannel Board Fun is hosting the roundup today. Don't forget to check her blog later to see all of the submissions from this week.

Flannel Friday Roundup: November 4, 2016

It's roundup day! Let's take a look at the fabulous Friday felt fabrications for Friday.

WHAT'S THAT?! YOU'LL HAVE TO SPEAK UP! I'm having difficulty hearing you over these NOISY ROBOTS made by Kathryn from Fun with Friends at Storytime!

Whew, it's a little quieter now. We can hear these Five Christmas Cookies made by Kate at Felt Board Magic chanting their rhyme. Don't eat too many, or you'll get a tummy ache. She's even included a pattern so you can bake more this holiday season.

After all those cookies, I need to brush my teeth. Never fear, because these Five Little Teeth also made by Kate at Felt Board Magic are here!

If you're worried about the Christmas rush, we have an adorable fall felt board for you. Mr. Keith from Felt-tastic Flannelboard Funtime has made these cute leaves for Autumn Leaves Are Falling Down. And, as if you need more convincing, there's coffee involved.

Wendy from Flannel Board Fun shows us just what might be hiding in those leaves: Little Snail. This Inspired By Flannel Friday idea actually uses real leaves!

Our last post is from the amazing Miss Mary Liberry (I say this not just because we work together, although it might be super awkward if I didn't). She's made a felt version of Brian Won's Hooray For Hat with super cute animals.

Flannel Friday Roundup 09/16/2016

Flannel Friday has come around once again! Was it just me, or was this week crazy? Let's blame it on the harvest moon, shall we?

Emily from Literary Hoots is getting royally silly with her "There's a Castle in the Middle of the Moat". Try this the next time you do a fairy tales or kingdoms storytime.

Keith from Felt-tastic Flannelboard Funtime shared his version of Dog's Colorful Day. The pieces are so detailed! They bring a whole new life to this favorite story and Keith even added motions for more fun.

Shawn from Read, Rhyme & Sing celebrates International Dot Day with a new twist on the old classic Little Mouse: Robot, Robot!  

Speaking of Dot Day, Lisa M. from Libraryland turned Eric Litwin's new book, The Nuts: Sing and Dance in Your Polka Dot Pants into a fun flannel board. I love that she didn't use felt, but foam and puffy paint, instead. Flannels can be made out of so many materials!

Wendy from Flannel Board Fun has a two-fer for us today! Her Pot of Songs is a fun way to add a little bit of flexibility to storytimes, especially when you have a wiggly crowd! She's also getting in the holiday spirit with these fun Christmas finger puppets.

Jane from Piper Loves the Library shares what is probably the cutest program I have seen in a long time (at least since the stuffed animal sleepover craze). It's called Talk to the Animals and I guarantee it will make you squee with delight.

Fall is almost upon us, and Kate from Felt Board Magic has two apple-tastic posts to share this week. A-P-P-L-E is a popular piggyback of B-I-N-G-O, but Kate has added her own flavor to it with an extra "crunchiness." Ten Red Apples is a cute song that also introduces addition and subtraction. Yummy!

And lastly we have Kathryn from Fun with Friends at Storytime with a fun balloon song, Counting Balloons, that will be perfect to use on the windy fall days that are coming soon.

Flannel Friday Roundup June 17, 2016

Friday, Friday, gotta get Flannel on Friday!

Lisa from Thrive After Three is kicking summer off with a flannel version of What This Story Needs is a Crunch and a Munch by Emma J. Virjan. silly rhymes + picnics = a fantastic Summer.

Let's welcome long time reader, first time poster, Michelle from Friday Story Time! She has turned Jim Averbeck's Except If into a gorgeous flannel board. Thanks for joining the posting fun, Michelle!

Summer means camping, especially to this poor woman stuck in the Arizona heat! Emily from Literary Hoots is sharing her love of getting back to nature with A Camping We Will Go. Stay cool, Emily!

Take a break from the heat with Wendy from Flannel Board Fun and her gingerbread set. This beautiful piece of art looks (almost) good enough to eat!

Kate from Felt Board Magic has two great ideas for us this week. First, she puts a new spin on Little Mouse with her Little Worm Hide and Seek. Her set of Five Cheeky Monkeys Swinging in a Tree (one of my favorites) is crazy cute! I am almost rooting for the little fellas this time.

It's not summer without a great fruit salad! Luckily, Laura from Literacious has just the thing. She's turned the song from Jbrary into a flannel board and even has a template to share. Yummy yummy! (And if you get that, you are probably like me and watch WAY too much Wiggles).

Mr. Keith from Felt-tastic Flannelboard Funtime (awesome blog name, btw) has made a flannel of Animal Colors. If you tell me you've seen cuter flannels, I just don't believe you.

Lastly we have a Flannel Friday veteran, Cate from Storytiming, with her super awesome octopus that she uses for Herman the Helper by Robert Kraus. Happy Cephalopod Week, everyone!

That's all we wrote, folks. Thank you so much to our participants this week and thank you all for being a part of Flannel Friday.
