Flannel Board: Bear Goes to the Beach
My friend Bear is going to the beach today! Let’s help her get ready!
What should Bear wear to the beach – a snowsuit OR her swimsuit?
What will Bear need at the beach – her mittens or her sunglasses?
Will Bear want to warm up with hot cocoa at the beach or cool off with a super duper ice cream cone?
What will Bear play with at the beach – her beach ball or her sled?
Looks like Bear is ready for a fun day in the sun!
i based this adorable felt story on one i found HERE.
Craft: Beach Bears
Kids colored a card stock bear, then attached a beach ball & popsicle stick to make a cute summer puppet!
This was a fun summer program! The stories were perfect and everyone loved the flannel story. I absolutely loved the beach bear puppets, they were so bright and colorful. I printed the bears from this awesome site HERE. I printed the beach balls on white cardstock using my color printer.
Today was Patron Appreciation Day here so we had cookies for all our patrons. I made a short announcement before the program thanking everyone for coming to our library so it was a really happy day. Two pretty big groups today: about 26 in the early session and 19 in the second one.
