Flannel Friday: Puppies!

I finished up another set of finger puppets from Floral Blossom’s Etsy shop! I cannot say enough nice things about Widia’s patterns. They are clear, crisp, and so easy to follow! And the kids just absolutely love these pieces.

Anyway, this week I made some puppies!

There’s a lot of rhymes that you can use with these, but the rhyme I plan to use is as follows:

Flannelboard/Fingerplay: “Five Little Puppies”
Five little puppies were playing in the sun. (Hold up hand, fingers extended.)
This one saw a rabbit, and he began to run. (Bend first finger.)
This one saw a butterfly, and he began to race. (Bend second finger.)
This one saw a pussycat, and he began to chase. (Bend third finger.)
This one tried to catch his tail, and he went round & round. (Bend fourth finger.)
This one was so quiet, he never made a sound. (Bend thumb.)

Flannel Friday: Bunnies!

When Andrea first posted her Flannel Friday contribution of these amazing bunny fingerpuppets from Purl Bee, I was IN LOVE. But…at the time, I was not a confident sewer and I didn’t feel like I could handle it. Fast-forward almost a year and…

BUNNIES! The cutting took me about an hour, and the sewing averaged out to be a half-hour per bunny! And yes, I did the full Martha and made my own little yarn pompoms. I made these for Easter storytime (that didn’t happen), but will also be using it at spring storytime, and if I do a bunny storytime again.

I will be using this rhyme with them:

“Five Little Bunnies”
Hippety hop and hippety hay,
Five little bunnies went out to play.
Hippety hop and hippety hay,
One little bunny hopped away.
(No more bunnies are playing today,
I hope they come back another day.)
