Flannel Friday Valentine's Day Extravaganza: Five Little Kisses

I really thought I wasn't going to come up with anything in time for today's Flannel Friday Mushy Gushy Valentine's Day Extravaganza. But at the eleventh hour, inspiration struck, and I came up with a cute flannel rhyme about kisses!


For this one, I'll use one of my family sets. (It would probably work best with the ones that are just faces, rather than the ones with full bodies, since the kisses will have to be big enough to be seen from the back of  the room.) Each time I "kiss" someone, I'll add them to the flannel board and place the pair of lips beside them.


 I have five kisses that I want to give away. 
Who should I kiss this Valentine's Day? 
I'll kiss Mommy!



I have four kisses that I want to give away.
Who should I kiss this Valentine's Day? 
I'll kiss Daddy!

I have three kisses that I want to give away.
Who should I kiss this Valentine's Day?
I'll kiss Grandma!

I have two kisses that I want to give away.
Who should I kiss this Valentine's Day? 
I'll kiss Grandpa!

I have one kiss that I want to give away.
Who should I kiss this Valentine's Day? 
I'll kiss you!


(After this last one, blow a kiss to the audience.)


I think this rhyme is versatile enough that you could kiss five of anything. Farm animals. Zoo animals. Other family members I haven't mentioned. Snowmen. Penguins. Babies. It might be fun to do one "serious" run-through with the family characters, and then another with a random collection of things to ramp up the silliness. I also plan to pair this flannel board with Nancy Tafuri's brand-new picture book, All Kinds of Kisses.

Another song I thought of using with the family set is this one from zerotothree.org, to the tune of Love Somebody, Yes I Do!

Love my mommy, 
Yes I do.
Love my mommy, 
Yes I do. 
Love my mommy, 
Yes I do. 
I love my mommy 
and she loves me too.

I think my groups might be a little tired of all my family songs and rhymes lately, though, so I might just stick to the kissing one and save this second song for a rainy day. ;-)

Today, Anna is hosting. Also check out the list of past and future #flannelfriday hosts at Anne's blog, and visit us on Pinterest and Facebook. A very happy Friday to all!
