Flannel Friday: Butterflies!

Since it’s finally, officially spring (and actually feels like spring in Chicago), here’s a great seasonal flannel:

Flannelboard: “Butterfly Colors”
The first to come to the garden bed
Is a lovely butterfly of brilliant RED.
Then in comes another and that makes two.
Fly right in, my friend of BLUE.
“The garden is fine, the best I’ve seen,”
says the butterfly of softest GREEN.
Our garden needs a sunny fellow,
Fly on in, butterfly with wings of YELLOW.
Little friend of PURPLE, fly in too.
The garden is waiting for a color like you.
ORANGE, orange, you’re waited so long.
Fly right in, where you belong.
Butterflies, butterflies, you’re such a sight!
Flying together – what a delight!

(Since I was out of yellow felt — SHOCKER — I just made the others and omitted that line when I did the flannelboard.)

This was a basic butterfly shape that I cut out using clip art. Then I bent a pipe cleaner in half and wrapped it around the felt piece to make antennas. Fear not though, Meg has a template for you to use in the above link if you’d rather not hunt down your own clip art!

Lindsey and Dana are hosting the round-up today! You can also check out our website, Pinterest, or Facebook!

    I love this poem and the flannelboard butterflies. Having the felt ito show children makes it so appealing
