#FlannelFriday: Five Little Pandas


Here they are...my felt pandas! I'll be using them for my China & Japan story time during Summer Reading. I'll be using a "Five Little Pandas" rhyme that I found in the PUBYAC archives and I might also make up my own.

I used Veronica Vasylenko's illustrations of Cynthia Platt's Panda-Monium! for patterns. I used a copier to enlarge the illustrations.

I used hot glue to attach the black felt to the white. Hot glue is effective, but rather messy (the strings!) What do you use for your felt pieces?

Puff paint (silver and black) worked very well for the eyes, noses, and mouths.

I plan to use this set again when I do Bears story time. They might also come in handy for an endangered animals story time.
