Flannel Story/Puppet Show
Ok, so it is after Valentine’s Day, but I finally had the time to post this after a very busy week. Better late than never! And, kisses are good for other days than just Valentine’s Day, right?
I have seven kisses that I want to give away.
Who should I kiss this Valentine’s Day?
I think I’ll kiss my________!
I put my kisses on the flannel board and also used puppets in the puppet theater as I said the rhyme. Sallie (the best library volunteer!) was in charge of the puppets and I gave the puppets a Valentine’s Day kiss.
I had to kiss a spider, wolf, bee, duck, Mr. Mouse and then I blew kisses to the kids! This was a great success as the kids got a real kick out of seeing who popped out of the theater next. I extended my kisses to seven instead of five to make things go a bit longer.
I drew the “kiss” and printed it off of colored stock paper.
This rhyme came from Storytime Secrets blog. She put her kisses on a flannel board and put pictures of family members (mommy, daddy, etc.) on the board as she said the rhyme. Check out her site for more great Valentine’s Day ideas!
