“The Bus for Us” is written by Suzanne Bloom. I am certainly not the first person to have retold the story in flannel board form. Most of my vehicle patterns came from Learn Create Love. There are a ton of craft patterns that translate well into felt. The people came from an Etsy shop called My Dollies By Nettie. For all the vehicles I made a front section that I put up on the board first so that the kids can guess what the vehicle is. I then switch it out for the full sized vehicle.
Kathryn Roach over at Fun With Friends at Storytime made up a set of five pencils and a cute rhyme to go with them. It is perfect for the toddler age. I chose a piece of clip art from Shutterstock to use as a pattern for the pencils. I was running short on time when I made these so they aren’t as detailed as other things I have created. At some point I will make a piece of notebook paper to go with them.
