Flannel Friday: Bears!

Both flannels today are inspired by previous Flannel Fridays! First up, Melissa from Mel’s Desk’s: “Five Bears”.

Melissa has the template available for download. I did use embroidery for the eyes since these pieces are handled by kiddos. But I used a rhyme from Anne at So Tomorrow with Melissa’s bears. (I did tweak it a bit since I didn’t have a teddy bear. You might notice that grizzly bears and black bears have a lot in common…)

All Types of Bears
To the tune of “Mary Had a Little Lamb”
Grizzly bears are big and brown, big and brown, big and brown.
Grizzly bears are big and brown, and live in the woods.

Polar bears are soft and white, soft and white, soft and white.
Polar bears are soft and white and live where it’s cold.

Panda bears are black and white, black and white, black and white,
Panda bears are black and white, and live with bamboo.

Koala bears have great big ears, great big ears, great big ears.
Koala bears have great big ears and live high in a tree.

Black bears are big and tall, big and tall, big and tall.
Black bears are big and tall, and live in the woods.

And next, from Kari’s My Storytime Life:

Kari based her flannelboard on a book. I used her rhyme and told the kids that we were looking for the three smallest balls for Jack to juggle. I kept switching balls out until all the right little balls were on the board. The kids were enamored with this one!


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!

    Thank you! I made those same bears from Mel’s Desk more than a year ago but could never get a rhyme that worked for me. This is great!
