Since summer reading ended, I’ve been able to start concentrating on making my flannelboards and props for fall storytime. First up on my list of planned themes is elephants! So I made these adorable finger puppets:
I used the pattern that was linked from this craft: Tippytoe Crafts to make the finger puppets. I did stuff their heads with some polyfill which makes them a little puffier that just flat flannel pieces.
I’m planning on modifying the “Two Little Blackbirds” rhyme just by substituting elephants in there and I know that it will be a big hit for me and my families!
