This week in preschool story time, I read books about the color red. As I was planning the story time, I needed something to come either before or after The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear. I thought strawberries would be easy to make. I went to Flannel Friday's Pinterest page (which I love...it's so easy to find what you're looking for!) and found Mel's Strawberries. I was so glad she included patterns. I decided to just make one size/shape strawberry and use gold puff paint to make the seeds. I accidentally dropped something on two of them before the paint was dry. I was able to salvage them. I told the kids those were really ripe when they were picked!
I used the same rhyme that Mel did, but instead of having a bear eat all the strawberries, I used the names of children at the story times.
