Flannel Friday: Apples!

Inspired by Katie at Storytime Secrets and Anne at So Tomorrow, I took my own turn using this template from PurlBee, which I found on Pinterest.

(Was that enough links for you?)

Here’s the rhyme, courtesy of Katie:

Five little apples
Hung in a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking.
So guess who came to eat?
A caterpillar! Munch munch munch!

Four little apples
Hung in a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking.
So guess who came to eat?
A horse! Munch munch munch!

Three little apples
Hung in a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking.
So guess who came to eat?
A pig! Munch munch munch!

Two little apples
Hung in a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking.
So guess who came to eat?
A bird! Munch munch munch!
One little apple
Hung in a tree
The farmer wasn’t looking.
So guess who came to eat?
A scarecrow! Munch munch munch!

Now the tree is bare
There are no more apples there
But when next fall comes around
Guess who’ll be there!
The caterpillar
The horse
The pig
The bird
And the scarecrow!

I’m planning on using finger puppets to “munch” the apple. Each apple has a plain side and a side with a bite/half missing from it, so I’m going to flip the apples after the puppet takes a bite.

Melissa has the round-up on her blog, Mel’s Desk today. If you participate in Flannel Friday, make sure to leave a comment there to add your post to the list!

    The idea to show the inside of the apple and the bite is great.
