Flannel Friday: Five Hungry Ants

A very out-of-place summertime & bug flannelboard today:

Rhyme: “Five Hungry Ants”
Five hungry ants, marching in a line,
Came upon a picnicwhere they could dine.
They marched into the salad,they marched into the cake,
They marched into the pepper….uh oh, that was a mistake!
(count down)

I made this using a clip art template for my ant. I blew it up in Publisher to get the right size. I used pipe cleaners (attached with hot glue) to make the antennae.

This was made for bugs storytime after it was such a success as a fingerplay in picnic storytime.

Lisa is hosting the round-up today! You can also check out our website, Pinterest, or Facebook!
