Seven Valentine’s Day Kisses


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?

Seven Kisses
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!

  1. Love, love, love the colors of your kisses! And your idea to use puppets. That is how I became more comfortable with using puppets in my storytime. I slowly incorporated them in my songs and fingerplays and then started doing pop-up appearances as I read books. It sure helped me because I wasn’t ‘t at all comfortable just talking to a puppet when I first started doing storytimes. But now… I’m the crazy lady who hosts her whole St Patrick’s Day storytime with a Leprechaun puppet! LOL
