Flannel Friday: The Great Hot Air Balloon Race

A flannelboard inspired by Destination Storytime: The Great Hot Air Balloon Race!


I let each child take a turn rolling the dice that I bought from Constructive Playthings — where I had put a matching piece of cardstock for each balloon color. The first balloon to hit the top of the flannelboard won! (I did have to stop moving them up so much when it was clear that blue was winning and I still had a few kids that needed a chance to roll.)

I used this hot balloon clip art as my template and made up the designs on the balloons. You can do anything with your balloons — I had the chance to see Balloon Fiesta in New Mexico in 2012 and there really is a balloon for everything!

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