Flannel Friday: Astronauts!

Today’s Flannel Friday is our Halloween extravaganza! I don’t have a Halloween flannel to share since I don’t do Halloween storytime at the library (only outreach!), but I will tie this back to Halloween!

The one costume I never got to dress up as and always wanted to was an…

astronaut! But now I have two astronauts to wear while doing any number of rhymes:

Two little astronauts afraid of the Sun,
One blasts off, now there is one.
One little astronaut alone is no fun,
He blasts off, now there are none.

Climb Aboard the Shuttle
Climb aboard the shuttle,
We’re going to the moon.
Hurry and get ready,
We’re going to blast off soon.
Put on your helmets,
And buckle up real tight.
Here comes the countdown,
Let’s count with all our might.
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1—BLAST OFF!!

Both rhymes from this awesome storytime/powerpoint, here.

I also do “Two Little Whatevers” a lot since my kids LOVE that rhyme. Even though astronauts don’t normally sit on a hill or wall, I think I can make a quick “Two little astronauts sitting on a SPACE HILL” adjustment and they’ll stay with me!

The template came from Crack of Dawn Crafts.

Flannel Friday: Owl Puppets!

Today’s Flannel Friday came way of a Pinterest pin, which I free-cut out, just by looking at the picture.

I used these finger puppets with my Owls storytime this past year. I did do the traditional “Two Little Blackbirds,” just modified. Super simple, very pleasing for the kids!

Flannel Friday: Five Little Monsters

Five little monsters jumping on the bed…

These adorable monsters were inspired by this Pinterest pin! I used them during Monster Storytime with the familiar song “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed.”

I used puffy paint for the eyes, since I didn’t feel like doing French knots! I tried to make them look a little ambiguous so that I could maybe use them as aliens and other creatures. That is, if I ever do an alien storytime!

Flannel Friday: Jungle Puppets!

I finished up another set of finger puppets from Floral Blossom’s Etsy shop! I cannot say enough nice things about Widia’s patterns. This is my THIRD set and I’ve still got two more sets purchased and waiting to be sewn!

I will be using these during Letter Z storytime, to act out this song:

Song & Puppets: “You Can Hear” (Tune: She’ll Be Coming Round the Mountain)
You can hear the lions roaring at the zoo, ROAR! ROAR!
You can hear the lions roaring at the zoo, ROAR! ROAR!
You can hear the lions roaring, you can hear the lions roaring
You can hear the lions roaring at the zoo! ROAR! ROAR!
(Elephants trumpeting, zebra braying, monkey eeking)

I have a second set of jungle animals that I need to finish up, but I’ve got a while until Letter Z!
