Happy Fifth Birthday, Flannel Friday!

It's Flannel Friday's Fifth birthday!!! This week we'll be featuring new and old party themed submissions.

Our founder, Melissa from Mel's Desk, shares her birthday set, complete with hats, candles, cupcakes, and presents! 

Kathryn from Fun with Friends at Storytime has some birthday presents for us to unwrap, along with lots of fun birthday activities and books.

Wendy has an exciting line up for us this week: Little Gorilla, Cupcakes, More Cupcakes, and PRESENTS!

Stop! Go! Wait, what?! Laura from Literacious is up to one crazy party game with her story about The Crazy Traffic Light.

Jaime has a felt version of the classic picture book, Happy Birthday, Moon by Frank Asch at Miss Jaime's Library Journeys.

Jane shares with us how she found Flannel Friday and her secret, no-bake cupcake recipe (spoiler alert: they're made out of felt).

Lastly, I'm sharing my twist on the Dr. Seuss' Birthday storytime. Disclaimer: no Dr. Seuss books were read during the performing of this storytime.

Thank you so much for celebrating with us! I started this blog in order to participate in Flannel Friday, and I can't even tell you how many ways it's changed my life. I've become a better librarian, I've met so many people, and I've had so many new experiences. Here's to many more years of flanneling on Fridays!

***Remember: 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 our Where Is Flannel Friday map.***
