Flannelboard: Bear in the Lair

If I come up with more rhymes and songs to go with this flannel set, the post will be edited to reflect that. If you have other ideas for ways to use this set, please share!

Flannelboard


I used this board for my hibernation and camping storytimes. I am honestly a little surprised that I haven't seen anyone else use this idea. I found a lot of hibernation themed storytimes for inspiration, but none of the flannelboards were quite what I wanted for the theme. I eventually latched onto the idea of a “Mouse in the House” variation with a sleeping bear in a den. I decided to keep the rocks for all the dens grey and just change the colors of the moss and foliage around the den.

  1. What a fun game! I love the different colored caves. Did you follow a clip art pattern?

    Thanks!

    1. Thanks! I didn't follow a pattern. I draw all the art for my flannels myself :)

    1. It just takes practice! At least my undergraduate degree in art is getting some use! :)
