Flannel Friday: Astronauts!

Today’s Flannel Friday is our Halloween extravaganza! I don’t have a Halloween flannel to share since I don’t do Halloween storytime at the library (only outreach!), but I will tie this back to Halloween!

The one costume I never got to dress up as and always wanted to was an…



astronaut! But now I have two astronauts to wear while doing any number of rhymes:

Two little astronauts afraid of the Sun,
One blasts off, now there is one.
One little astronaut alone is no fun,
He blasts off, now there are none.

Climb Aboard the Shuttle
Climb aboard the shuttle,
We’re going to the moon.
Hurry and get ready,
We’re going to blast off soon.
Put on your helmets,
And buckle up real tight.
Here comes the countdown,
Let’s count with all our might.
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1—BLAST OFF!!

Both rhymes from this awesome storytime/powerpoint, here.

I also do “Two Little Whatevers” a lot since my kids LOVE that rhyme. Even though astronauts don’t normally sit on a hill or wall, I think I can make a quick “Two little astronauts sitting on a SPACE HILL” adjustment and they’ll stay with me!

The template came from Crack of Dawn Crafts.
