Flannel Friday: This Little Baby

This week's Flannel Friday is another set taken from Stories and Fun for the Very Young. This time, I borrowed five images from "I can" by Helen Oxenbury (pages 50-51) and then wrote my own rhyme to go with them. Here is the end result. (My new phone takes terrible pictures without the flash, and with the flash, there was a glare, so I apologize for the poor quality!)

The first little baby said, “I’m so big!”

The second little baby danced a jig.
(He's actually kicking, but without anything to kick, it looks like a jig!)

The third little baby sat down on the floor.

The fourth little baby crawled to the door.

The fifth little baby learned to run.
All the little babies had so much fun! 

I have been dying for a decent set of flannel board babies for a long time - and these are so perfect! I'm sure I will find more uses for them as time goes on. 

Today's Flannel Friday host is Angela. Have a great weekend!


  1. This is such a cute idea! I love the "I'm so big" picture. Helen Oxenbury does wonderful illustrations of chubby little ones. Lol! Perfect choice for your flannel pieces.

  2. I adore the Helen Oxenbury books and often want to "flannelize" them. This is perfect!

  3. How did you do the images? Love it!

    1. I blew them up on the library's color copier. I only made a couple of mistakes - it was pretty easy.

  4. Thanks, Katie. I'm going to try this. How wonderful for our infants and ones at storytime!! Thank you for sharing!! Donna
