A quick peek at Flannel Friday's Finger Puppet page sent me off to the store for embroidery floss and needles! Two Little Blackbirds is a song that we do all the time during our Small and Large Group times (the adorable JBrary version linked is a chant--I'll try to find the tune I use and post it here). I don't think I'd ever thought to use finger puppets for it--we just use our thumbs... But these little guys really engage the children, and keep our fingers warm too!
I maybe sewed last when I was in 8th grade, but haven't since then. I will stick to basic stuff--my eyesight is definitely not what it once was!
These were made in the fall, and used a lot in the fall this year, but of course they can be used anytime!
The bats and blue birds above are from Mel's Desk. I love her stuff! My kids had to keep reminding me to say "bats" instead of "birds" when I used the bats. Twenty years of saying "birds" is a hard habit to break!
This is a cute poem to go with these adorable penguins!
I did a google image search for bear finger puppets, and free handed my guys based on the results.
Can't remember where I found this:
To the tune of Where is Thumbkin:
Where is bear, where is bear?
Here I am, Here I am!
How are you today bear?
Very sleepy thank you!
