Flannel Friday: Elephants!

Inspired by Mary, and I know that Mollie did her own, too. Anna posted the second rhyme. The combination of both of these flannels came from Andrea. Basically, these are two flannels that have been around the block!

Rhyme: “One Elephant Went Out to Play”
One elephant went out to play
Upon a spider’s web one day
He had such enormous fun
He called another elephant to come…
(HEY, ELEPHANT!)
Two elephants went out to play
Upon a spider’s web one day
They had such enormous fun,
They called another elephant to come…
(You get the picture.)

Rhyme: “Five Elephants in the Bathtub”
One elephant in the bathtub
Going for a swim.
Knock, Knock, (Clap twice with “Knock, Knock.”)
Splash, Splash, (Slap knees twice with “Splash, Splash.”)
Come on in! (Motion with both hands to come in.)
Two elephants elephants in the bathtub… etc.
(Until…)
Five elephants elephants in the bathtub
Going for a swim.
Knock, Knock,
Splash, Splash,
They all fell in!

And there you go — one flannel set; two flannel rhymes! I haven’t used either of these rhymes with the set yet, but I can’t wait until I do.

Sharon has the round-up this week. Melissa started this. Anne has the archive. And you can also follow the Flannel Friday Pinterest account. (Also, Melissa has a new button if you want to link to Flannel Friday and it’s up at her blog here.)

    They may have been around the block but they’re always new to someone! Like me, who apparently missed Anna’s elephants this summer. 🙂 Your elephants are darling…are they stitched around the edges?

      They are! I’m absolutely awful with puffy paint, but pretty handy with a needle and embroidery thread.
