Can you believe that Flannel Friday is four years old already?! It seems like just yesterday Mel was inviting us to post our own flannel boards on Fridays. Sniff. They grow up so fast.

Flannel Friday - One Penguin in the Bathtub

Happy Flannel Friday, everyone. Long time no see! Today's post was made out of laminated clip art and Velcro and was featured in my polar animals storytime a few weeks ago.

Knock, knock (clap hands)
Splash, splash (slap knees)
Come on in!

A Flannel Friday Announcement: Guest Post Palooza!



Celebrate Flannel Friday’s Birthday

Flannel Friday is celebrating its fourth birthday, and we have decided to do something a little different. What started out with a few librarians sharing their flannel story ideas on Twitter has grown into something pretty special.


We are hosting a Guest Post Palooza.  If you’ve ever wanted to share one your favorite flannel boards, but don’t have a blog, this is your opportunity.  We will pair you up with a blogger who is willing to share their spot in the blogosphere.  


We need people who are willing to post flannel stories and we need bloggers who are willing to host someone else’s work on March 6.  Is that you?  


Remember, every single one of us, from Melissa D to you, had to start blogging sometime. This is a great way to dip your toe into the blogging pool..  


Please fill out the attached Google form.  Sharon or I will contact you with your match.

Have questions about this?  Check out our FAQs page.


Be sure to check out this week's roundup hosted by Kim at her blog Literary Commentary.

Flannel Friday - Thanksgiving Extravaganza Roundup

Thanksgiving is just three weeks away! Here are some flannels to get you in the eating mood!

It's a twofer from Kathryn at Fun with Friends at Storytime: Get your winter coat on, we're Going on a Turkey Hunt. Unfortunately, the Five Fat Turkeys have all run away, so it looks like we might have to have pizza instead!

Let your fingers do the dancing when you use Annie from So Tomorrow's turkey finger puppet.

Make sure you save some room for cake! Anne from itsybitsymom has a flannel version of The Cake that Mack Ate.

These Five Little Turkeys are ready for some fun! Check them out at Ms. Kelly at the Library!

This flannel board has me looking forward to some pumpkin pie! Thank you, Maggie, for sharing your Five Giant Pumpkins!

Speaking of pumpkins, these adorable jack-o-lanterns from Amy the One Little Librarian are sure to brighten anyone's day!

Jane at Piper Loves the Library featured community art projects at her library. It also looks like the spiders at her library had a party!

That's it for this week's roundup. Here are our upcoming events:
1. There will be no Flannel Friday on November 28 (the day after Thanksgiving in the US).
2. Our Winter Holiday Extravaganza will be on December 5 at Mel's Desk.
3. We will not have Flannel Friday on December 19 or 26.

I hope everyone has a happy November! You can also find Flannel Friday on FacebookPinterest, and at our Flannel Friday Blog. If you're new to Flannel Friday, don't forget to add your name and location to the Where Is Flannel Friday map.
