Muddy Pigs Revsited

So, one of my earliest flannel board sets after discovering Flannel Friday was a muddy pig set, inspired by multiple fabulous librarians.  

But I wanted to update my set to make it more of my own design, and I couldn't bear to rub brown fabric paint on these new cuties.  So I switched my mud spots to be made of felt, and I love them so much more.
I also decided those muddy pigs might like to get clean, too!  So I made my mud puddle reversible to a water puddle (or a lake, as I call it in my new little song...)

 Here are a couple of songs you could use with this set when you want to clean off the pigs:

Five Muddy Hog and Sows
Five muddy hogs and sows
(They’re pigs they are not cows)
Wanted to take a little swim.
One jumped into a lake
Got clean for goodness sake
That leaves four muddy hogs and sows
Continue, counting down to zero :)

Five Muddy Pigs
Down at the farm by the big blue lake
Were five muddy pigs for goodness sake
One jumped in and the mud washed away,
Now that pig is ready to play!
Keep counting down...
