toddler Tuesday… flannel stories

Looking for something to help bring you stories to life?  Grab some felt!  These flannel stories are easy to make and so much fun to use!!!

J used the “Five Green and Speckled Frog” pieces while I sat nearby singing the song.  Most young toddlers aren’t quite ready to sit and watch the story unfold.  With flannel stories you can tell the story while they rearrange the pieces.

N explored the felt fruit while we talked about fruit names and colors.  Flannel stories do not have to be limited to felt boards.  A few felt pieces can be used on the floor or carried around the house.

I spent quite a bit of time with the details on this bowl of fruit.  When you are making flannel stories you can make them as fancy as you want.

You can also make them very simple.  Just trace the characters from your favorite book, cut and draw in a few details.  EASY!

You can find our Chicka Chicka Boom Boom flannel story here.   (Make sure to scroll to the bottom, you’ll find info on making or buying a flannel board!)

    I’ve seen these before, but I have forgotten about them! Thanks for reminding me. My almost 2 year old (he’ll be 2 in less than 2 weeks!) will love them. He loves to read and is really into characters right now. I love the details in your fruit. :)
