Flannel Friday: Pretty Ladybugs

This is one that Mollie at Miss Mollie’s Storytime Fun did during one of the first weeks of Flannel Friday. I immediately bookmarked it because I’ve got a counting storytime coming up this summer, where this will be perfect!

For the ladybug, I just blew up Mollie’s picture and used that as a straight template. And for the numbers, I used our Ellison die-cut machine for the first time with felt! It worked pretty good as far as I’m concerned. The only number I had to correct out of the machine was the six. (Also, our Ellison is pretty old — it’s the LetterMachine XL. I don’t know how cutting felt would work on any other Ellison so I wanted to make sure you knew which one I had.)

Here’s the rhyme from Mollie:

“Pretty Ladybug” (Sung to: “The Muffin Man”)
Ladybug has 1 black spot,
1 black spot, 1 black spot;
Ladybug has 1 black spot,
Pretty ladybug!
Continue until there are 6 spots.
— Which she got from PreschoolEducation.com

See you guys next week for another #flannelfriday!
