Flannel Friday: “Papa, Please Get the Moon For Me”

This week I’m featuring the other flannelboard that I made on the plane ride to and from ALA’s Midwinter Conference this January: “Papa, Please Get the Moon For Me.”

Story Props Page on Kizclub // “Papa” Template (Color) // Book: Eric Carle

I didn’t do any of the painting on the plane, I promise!

My favorite part about this flannel is the glittery felt I found to do the moon. And the ladder (which is just pipe cleaners and a little dab of Tacky glue on each connecting part), which took me a few hours to suss out back at the library.

I haven’t had a chance to use this flannel yet with the kids; I made it for a “Starry Night Stories” program for families this winter, but we got snowed out and no one came. I rescheduled the program for this summer, so it will be used then!

      Thanks! I love this book, so making the flannel was an easy decision.

    A flannel for this story is a nice alternative to managing all the big flaps in the book!

      Definitely. The flaps are definitely cumbersome at times! (Especially trying to get them to fold back nicely before turning the page.)

        I agree. I wanted to use this flannel after I read once (for repetition, but I’m not sure how to transition to it post story. Any ideas? Thanks!

        I tend to start with, “So, Monica went to get the moon for Papa, right?” as I put Monica up on the board first. The kids love squealing “NO, MISS KATIE!” and we wind up retelling the story that way. “Okay, it was Papa. Papa jumped high into the sky…wait, he didn’t? What did he use? Oh, a ladder!” etc.

    Oh I love your moons! So cute! And very clever to use pipe cleaners for the ladder 🙂
