#FlannelFriday Five Little Spaceships

So I says to the kids, “What is this?”

And they tell me “A hat!”. Well, I saw that coming so I just flip it around and ask “Ok but what is this?”

And in return I got a bunch of  “ohhhhhhh”s.

This entire thing was a last minute creation made the night before a storytime when I had no flannel board planned.

5 Little Spaceships exploring Earth on a tour.

     One forgot it’s passport so that left four.

4 Little Spaceships diving in the sea.

   One sprung a leak and then there were three.

3 Little Spaceships visiting the zoo.

   One got eaten by a hippo so then there were two.

2 Little Spaceships eating burgers in a bun.

   One forgot his wallet so that left one.

One Little Spaceship ready to go home.

   He shot off into space and then there were none.

I think my favorite is the image of a tiny spaceship getting eaten by a hippo. But the idea of tiny spaceships eating burgers reminds me of Batteries Not Included so that makes me happy too.

    Starting with the spaceship turned around is an awesome idea. it’s always good to start a storytime by blowing their minds. one day, i’ll buckle down and teach myself some really good magic tricks (or even some o.k. magic tricks.
