Flannel Friday: Boxes

This box set was inspired by Melissa of Mel’s Desk! I created a template in Publisher, just making quick shapes and knocked this out in about twenty minutes. You can see that the kids made a train when we did this in storytime. Each child laid down a piece and then I turned it around
