Flannel Friday: Three Little Kittens

[Check back later for the round-up because I’m hosting this week!]

I have no idea where this set came from — it was here when I started working at the library, but somehow, we lost two of the kittens. I wound up remaking it from the original (and the cat clip-art from DLTK’s farm pack) because nothing matched. It drove me CRAZY. So, I do not have a pattern for this one, but it was fairly easy to make (and would probably be SUPER easy to find some clip art)!

Obviously, this uses the traditional rhyme:

Three little kittens,
They lost their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear,
We sadly fear
Our mittens we have lost.
What! Lost your mittens,
You naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
You shall have no pie.

The three little kittens,
They found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear,
See here, see here,
Our mittens we have found.
What! Found your mittens,
You darling kittens!
Then you shall have some pie.
Mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow, mee-ow.
You shall have some pie.

(I only go to the second verse; I know there are more — you could make the mittens double sided so that they could get soiled and then clean all over again!)

      Hi Emilia,

      I do not have the pattern for that. You can, however, use the picture itself as a pattern and try to recreate it!

  2. Winter! | storytime katie - January 2, 2014

    […] This was a nice quiet start for the first storytime since October. It might have been almost too quiet, because I had wigglers up until the snow fell in the story. But the minute the snow appeared, everyone sat down and listened up. It was a nice moment, after I had been mildly worried that things were going south. (I can’t be the only librarian who frets during storytime!) Followed this up with a great transition into our flannelboard: “The Three Little Kittens.” […]
