Flannel Friday: Shape Game

A Flannel Friday post inspired by possibly the best hugger in the world, Brooke at Reading With Red!

(No, seriously, I think Brooke has the hugger title locked in.)

The shape game!

I started using this flannel immediately after starting my position and taking on baby time. I scoured websites looking for ideas and I have to report: there’s something magical about the shape game. I would hide another flannel piece behind one of the shapes and talk to the babies and caregivers.

One by one, I would “eliminate” one shape as I talked about it. All of these guesses would end with some variation of “No, it’s not under there. Let’s try another shape!”

“Can we find a shape that makes a noise? What about the heart? What kind of sound does it make?”

“Which shape has three points?”

“Miss Katie is wearing a dress that matches a shape. What color is it?”

I always keep the object hidden until the very last shape. Then our theme for the day is revealed!

The shapes are are large as I could get them on a 9×12 piece of felt. The star is the tiniest, so I hide things under it very rarely.
