Engaging programs to keep kids coming back to the library
We have a bountiful Flannel Friday Roundup today! But first things first: Flannel Friday needs your help! Amy at Catch the Possibilities fills you in on how you can participate in the FF community in addition to posting your fabulous ideas. Check it out and use the email posted.
Katie at Story Time Secrets shares a poem story called Who is Tapping at My Window? She includes a link to the original poem and her slideshow with links to the clip art she used. You can easily recreate this in either electronic or flannel form.
Celebrating Dental Health Month is Kathryn from Fun with Friends at Storytime with her Tooth Fairy Game. It’s the perfect variation to Little Mouse, Are You Behind the (Color) House. I’m off to make my own!
Meg the Megnificent of Miss Meg’s Storytime has a stolen version of bears from the master at Mel’s Desk featuring a brown bear, koala bear, polar bear, and panda bear (add a black bear to complete the ensemble).
Lisa’s Libraryland has a Valentine’s Day Match Game. Though most of us would use this idea during storytime, Lisa extended it to use in the children’s room. It only takes a little prep work, money, and bribery to steal this idea.
And, finally I’m sharing a cookie story after staring at Bridget’s cookies! I’m sharing Who Took the Cookies complete with a flannel idea, puppet idea, and a ready-to-use craft.
