I have decided (ok was encouraged by Storytime Katie) to jump aboard the Flannel Friday train. I really do enjoy making flannel boards and have been a lurker on the Flannel Friday Pinterest for a while but have been intimated by all of the AWESOME ideas people have. I have been thinking about it for a while and I am finally ready to make my debut.
This weeks storytime featured MONSTERS. This is my most favorite theme so I made my own little monsters to share with the kids. I made ten little guys that look like this:
I have a hard time picking my favorite. I think it may be the purple guy with grey squiggles. I also really like the Cyclops!
My inspiration came from Brobee from Yo Gabba Gabba:
I used these guys to sing 10 Little Monsters, a variation of 10 Little Indians:
One little, two little,
Three little monsters
Four little, five little,
Six little monsters
Seven little, eight little,
Nine little monsters
Ten little monsters can’t scare me!
Ten little, nine little,
Eight little monsters
Seven little, six little,
Five little monsters,
Four little, three little,
Two little monsters,
One little monster,
NO little monsters can scare me!
A note on the song: Generally I don’t like to sing the original version but the tune SO great with other things like bubbles and monsters etc!
It’s nice to have 10 little guys because now I can use some of them for other flannel boards that require less monsters. There you have it, my first ever contribution to Flannel Friday!
