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.
