Flannel Friday: Five Little Pumpkins

Leave a comment

We all know this tried and true rhyme about pumpkins on a gate. But, I wanted to share this because I really love the idea of using an old glove (that one without a mate?) for a fingerplay/flannel. This was in our flannel bin and after giving it a makeover with fresh velcro and new eyes it was ready for the show. The kids LOVED it! And I heard a mom say “That’s a good idea with the glove.” So double win for Five Little Pumpkins!


There are witches in the air-Woooo!

For those libraries on a budget who can’t afford to buy a real storytime glove this would work really well.  Having a couple of spare black gloves is great for doing puppet shows, too.

Mollie’s got the roundup at What Happens in Storytime… and don’t forget to click on the Flannel Friday Pinterest button for pictures of all the lovely flannels from the past months.
