Thank You Bear – Storytime Visual

on January 31, 2013

This week’s storytime was prepared by our new teen librarian, so I suggested a puppet adaptation of Thank You Bear by Greg Foley’s for her Friends theme (I’d used it for my Boxes Storytime). I used to have a little mouse, but it vanished! I searched around locally but didn’t find anything I liked, so I made one instead. All of the other characters were puppets we have on hand.


I created the pattern first with paper, to work out the kinks, then cut it out of felt. Using hot glue I attached the tummy piece on the sides and top, then glued down the top of the nose. Voila! Add the eyes, ears and nose and it’s good to go!


Choosing a tail. I also stitched in some whiskers, and added a dot of whiteout on the eyes.


And mouse is all ready for his gift from bear.

Anne at So Tomorrow is hosting the round up this week. Make sure you fill our our Where in the World is Flannel Friday survey. We want to hear from everyone who participates in Flannel Friday, both bloggers and readers.
