These adorable babies were inspired by Melissa of Mel’s Desk!
To make a template, I blew up Melissa’s picture in Publisher so that I could just cheat off her genius.
I used this in several storytimes, including a baby storytime as my hidden Shape Game object and in a family themed storytime for my toddlers this spring. For the families, I used Melissa’s rhyme:
Five Little Babies
by Melissa Depper
Five little babies sitting in their cribs
The first one said, “I need another bib!”
The second one said, “I wish I had my ball.”
The third one said, “I wish that I could crawl!”
The fourth one said, “Oh, when can we play?”
The fifth one said, “It’s been a busy day.”
Then Shhhhh went the mommies and out went the lights,
And five little babies said goodnight.
