Engaging programs to keep kids coming back to the library
My Toddler storytime is always crowded, especially in the winter time! I’ve been working on “large print” flannels and decided to create a new one for Valentine’s Day. I love Tuck Me In. It’s a cute animal story in which you tuck everyone in for bedtime. I created animals large enough to fill up my flannel board. I made accompanying “blankets” that match each animal’s color. I pass the blankies out before we read the story and as I add each animal to the flannel, I ask the children to come up and tuck them in if they have the matching blanket. Once everyone is seated we blow the animal a kiss. Here are the onces I made to match the book. I drew the animals with black fabric paint, then cut the animals out when they dried. They loved this story so much, I think I’m going to add my own animals!
