Flannel Story: Breakfast at the Farm

I found this great story idea on Flannel Friday in a wonderful blog called Storytiming and the kids loved it! Basically, a little boy feeds all the farm animals the wrong foods for breakfast and the kids get to match the animal with the correct dish. Very fun!

Craft: Farm Animal Stick Puppets

Barefoot Books had this cute printable coloring sheet so I printed copies onto cardstock for the kids to color. Then we cut them out & taped them to popsicle sticks to create a cute puppet set! You can find the printable here.

The kids today were pretty quiet (2 girls and a boy) and not especially interested in my songs & fingerplays. They did love the puppet craft tho and I heard them all singing Old MacDonald while they colored their puppets.
