Flannel Friday: Summer Clothes

Welcome to Flannel Friday! This week’s round up will be is over at Sharon’s blog Rain Makes Applesauce!

I made a set of summer clothes for summer storytimes.

You can play a guessing game with pieces like this (“I’m going to the pool and need to put on something that I can wear in the water. What is it?”) or sing “If You’re Going to the Pool,” to the tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”

If you’re going to the pool, wear your suit,
If you’re going to the pool, wear your suit,
If you’re going to the pool, then a suit will keep you cool,
If you’re going to the pool, wear your suit.

…then a hat will keep you cool
…then flip flops will keep you cool
…then some shades will keep you cool

I also made Summer and Winter labels! You can make a Winter Clothes set, and hand out all the summer pieces and the winter pieces to the kids. Put the Summer and Winter labels on either side of your flannelboard. Tell the kids to look at their pictures and decide if they are summer clothes or winter clothes, then they can come up and put their piece under the correct label.

    Cute flannel! I think we are going to try and stay away from mentions of “the pool” because the City just started tearing down our pool in town. BOO!
