Tuck Me In

Tuck Zebra

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!
