Flannel Friday: 5 Crazy Monsters


Since Halloween is comin’ around the bend. I thought I’d spend the next couple of weeks showing my plans for Boo Time. I’m partnering up with the lovely Clara (an awesome librarian here at the library) on a boo-hemoth Halloween party for preschoolers.

We tell stories, do a costume fashion show, make have tons of crafts, and decorate pumpkins. Here’s one of the stories I’ll be doing this year:

5 Crazy Monsters

Now, if you were born and raised under a rock you may not know the words. So here’s how it goes:

5 crazy monsters jumping on the bed.
One fell off and bumped his head.
Mama called the doctor and the doctor said,
“No more monsters jumping on the bed.”

(repeat with 4, 3, 2, 1)

I know some people groan when it comes to this tune, but I never get tired of it. And ScribbleMonster (one of my favorite kid’s bands) played it during a performance at my library earlier this year, it was a huge hit. Everyone was tapping their toes, and singing along. So I stand by it!


Oh and don’t forget to checkout the Flannel Friday Roundup. This week, Future Librarian Superhero is hosting. For a visual round-up of all postings, check out Flannel Friday on Pinterest. And check out the new a Facebook group as well now.

  1. Hello Storytiming – Hope you don’t mind that I stole your idea and made my own copies of your scary monsters. Best to you, Michael

  2. These monsters are sooooo cute! I think that I’ll have to add them to my ‘friendly monster’ story time in a few weeks 🙂

  3. That’s a great adaptation! Super awesome!
