Over the summer, I bookmarked Mary's (of Miss Mary Liberry) FlannelFriday post about Conejito by Margaret Read MacDonald. I thought it was a great adaption and would work well for the folk tales story time I had planned for the fall.
For the rabbits, lion, and tiger, I used the clipart from Clker.com that Mary recommended. I adapted the lion slightly. I gave him a bigger head like the tiger and free-handed the mane to fit over his head.
I decided to make the fox (which Mary left out to shortened the story) in case I wanted to use the story with older kids. Patterns for the fox, barrel, and fire came from Mircosoft clipart. All the pieces are felt with puff paint details.
I ended up not using this flannel during my folk tales story time because I hadn't learned the story well enough. However, I 'm looking forward to using it in the future.
