Flannel Friday Round-Up for March 9

This week's round-up has a wide range of creative ideas. 

Sarah of Read, Sarah, Read presents a versatile "House" story time.  The house is made from shapes and can be used with a rhyme, or as she did, having the children help build the house.  She also has a flannel that matches animals to their homes, again getting the children involved.

Katie of Storytime Katie has created a work of art!  She has embroidered all the details of a fantastic "Freight Train."

Kari Ann of My Storytime Life concludes the adventures of the "Hippity Hop" frogs when they find out what is over the wall.  I love the exuberant frogs!

Andrea of Rovingfiddlehead Kidlit was inspired by a Flannel Friday post to make a "Magical Rainbow Stew." (She has in turn inspired me to do this for my April Family Story Time.)

Library Quine of Loons and Quines at Librarytime has a cute rhyme about puppies as well as tips about making a "flannel" set quickly.

Katie of Story Time Secrets gives us a flannel version of a rhyme by one of her favorite story time authors, Nick Sharratt (he's one of my favorites too.).  Those are some "Snazzy Aunties."

Susanne of Fussy Hen at the Library brings us "KITTY" instead of "BINGO" with a clever use of felt and calendar pages.  I wish I could have been there to hear all the meowing at the end.

Jane of Piper Loves the Library created beautiful, colorful circles inspired by Kandinsky and a circle game inspired by Joni Mitchell.  She has books and activities for a great "Circle" story time program.

Kay of Storytime ABC's celebrates St. Patrick's Day with "Leprechaun, Leprechaun, What Do You See?"  She cleverly places the pieces to form a rainbow complete with a post of gold at the end.

Cate of Storytiming informs us that "Holy Moly, There's an App for That!" - yes, virtual felt.

Meghan of Busy Crafting Mommy is ready for summer with her flannel version of Splash! by Ann Jonas. She shows how it can be used with different ages.

I would like to extend a warm welcome to Courtney of Miss Courtney Meets Bobo who is a first-time Flannel Friday participant.   She has written her own story to go with some flannel pieces she "inherited" without a story.  Her "Colorful Caterpillar" would be a great for a spring story time.

Another warm welcome to new contributor Lena of Sixcranberries who has made a cute rocket finger puppet to accompany a rhyme about going to the moon.  A little glitter makes it sparkle. 

Maureen of StrongStart has been inspired by Flannel Friday.  For her first contribution she has a "Cat in the Hat Felt Game."  Welcome Maureen! 

My contribution for this week is about using finger puppets for rhymes with Finger Puppets or How I Do "Five Little Monkeys."
