Flannel Friday: Eight (Nine, Really) Planets

An out-of-this-world flannel!

I originally made this laminated flannelboard at my old library. I don’t know where the pieces went in the moving process. (I honestly think I left behind nearly all of the laminated flannels in a file cabinet I didn’t clean out in time.)

Anyways, I used it in Number Nine! storytime and then re-made it this summer to use in outreach Space! storytime. I did make Pluto because we were having storytime on the day that Pluto pictures were revealed (!!!) and I wanted to talk about that. This is just a discussion based ordering flannel. No special rhymes!

The new set features clip art from Etsy shop JWIllustrations.

There is no round-up today due to the holiday, but I made a resolution to post EVERY Friday this year and I’m keeping it! You can also check out our website, Pinterest, or Facebook!

    My son would love this! He’s five and has been asking lots of questions about the planets recently.

    I love this! How are the laminated pieces sticking to the flannel board? Did you glue a little bit of felt on the back of the pieces? Thanks!

      I buy sticky felt at Michaels. It has a peel-and-stick backing.
