My second flannelboard for Sick/Get Well storytime came from Melissa on Twitter! I crowd-sourced and needed a flannelboard (as we know from last week, I did wind up using two) idea for this theme. Melissa suggested having kids bring up band-aids to an animal on the flannelboard. I turned this around slightly and decided to use Applesauce, our storytime mascot, to model the band-aids.
I called the kids up by color and specifically told them where to put their band-aids, ie, “Oh, no! Applesauce’s paw hurts! Please put a band-aid there to help him feel better!” This was a hit, and afterwards, Applesauce shook off all his band-aids and felt all better.
