Things have been crazy at the library lately with SRC and a whole lot of other craziness. Not only have I not been making any new flannels, I just haven’t I’ve have the time or energy for blogging. I missed at least 2 #FFs in a row. Anyway, I decided to reach into my felt board vault and find the very first flannel board I ever made:
I love this book. And this is a pretty simple flannel board. There are only 4 pieces, but I made the bear big enough, that it’s risky to put all the pieces on one board. It’s too easy to knock all the pieces over when you’re switching the bears between the bear and the boy. So I use 2 boards side by side (even though the photo shows them all on a single board.) Also, I usually have the book on hand. The rhythm of the story is just one part of what makes this an awesome read-aloud, but it’s a pretty important part.
I don’t have a pattern for this one, but I could take a shot at making it from the pieces. I sketched them freehand, and and cut the felt using my drawings.
He’s scared already!
Uh oh! Wait, what that sound?
Something’s not right here…
And they each run home, jump into bed (I made a blanket to tuck them both in at the end, but I may have repurposed the felt for another story at some point.
