Flannelboards

One flannelboard does not have a post attached: Turkey Color Match. I will make this posts for it before the 2014 holiday season!

Click on any of the pictures below to be taken to the blog post about that flannelboard. At the post, you’ll find out how I made the flannelboard and how you can make one yourself. If you want to know which book/rhyme/song is pictured, hover over the picture for the title to appear.

If you have any questions, feel free to comment and I’ll do my best to answer your question.

    I love these flannelboards!! I’m working on the “Seals on the Bus” one right now but I’d love to make the Maisy with the colored houses one. Unfortunately I can’t find the link on the Collaborative Summer Library Program website :( I went to the archives and checked last summer’s theme, but no luck. You don’t happen to have the template saved do you? Thanks so much!

      I don’t have the template saved actually. It came in our Summer Reading Program idea binder, but was unfortunately lost this summer during our library’s flood. So sorry!

    I absolutely adore this blog! I ran across it while looking for ideas for my library story hour, and I am so glad! Thanks for sharing all of your great ideas; I was previously daunted at the idea of creating my own flannelboard and “puppets”. Now, all that has faded away to excitement =)

    I love your site! We homeschool, and I have been trying to find activities for my toddler that his older sister can do with him and your flannel boards have given me so many ideas. Thanks!

    Your blog is great for felt board lovers, and I am pleased that you are using my rhyme, “Ten Teddy Bears.” However, I would like acknowledgment. Heidi (SurLaLune Storytime) has removed it from her site. I don’t require that, but I do require attribution. Another site owner has continued to use it with proper attribution. As with much of what is used without permission on Internet, this rhyme went through many hands before reaching you. This one started with a library website several years ago, but the ownership is mine. I have written a book of felt board activities and it is very important to me to have that acknowledgment. Thank you. Susan Pflug

      I have taken down the rhyme and attributed you as the author. When I corrected the Flannel Friday post, I forgot about this page — thank you for the reminder and I wish you the best!

    I am trying to find patterns for the story “Is Your Mama a Llama”. Do you have any suggestions?
    Thanks so much, I love your hard work…

      I do not know of any templates for that story — there are quite a few for sale on Etsy though, which could give you ideas to make your own. Hope that helps!

      Thank you so much!

      I’m glad that you are taking ideas away from the blog, and I’m sure that your flannels are lovely. I always try to give everyone the tools to make their own flannels because they are so well-received in storytime! Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a note!

    I was really impressed by your flannelboard pieces, especially the elephants and Olivia’s family. Nice work!

      If click on each photo, it will direct you to the blog post where I talk about my source material. If it’s a rhyme/song, words are there. If it’s a book, I don’t put words up for copyright reasons.

    Katie, I’m very excited to have found your blog! I recently had someone make me a travel flannel board (I don’t sew) and I’m planning to work on some felt activities with my toddler. I’m hoping you wouldn’t mind helping me to choose the best felt for my board activities? I’ve not worked with felt much so I want to make sure not to waste money…

      I actually just use the $0.30 felt that you find at most craft/hobby stores. I’ve made a few purchases on Etsy for higher-quality felt when making friends/family gifts, but for the library — I want these pieces to be able to be handled and used without worrying about the cost of having to replace pieces. As of today, it’s been three years and I’ve only had to replace pieces due to loss rather than wear.

    I Love the felt board themes. I haven’t created since the “Five Little Ducks,” about three years ago. I have to create the “Three Little Pigs (+).” Thanks!
