Five Candles

This is a cute flannel board for birthday and party themes. As I read through the rhyme I have the kids and parents help me blow out the candles. It is fun to see who can flow the hardest.

To make this I used a clip art image I found as a template for the cake. A while ago I stopped using puff paint on my flannels because I always had a hard time drawing even lines or the pieces would stick together after a while. I still wanted to dress up the cake with sprinkles and settled on a colorful pack of beads that I randomly sewed onto the frosting.

Five candles on a birthday cake,
Five, and not one more.
You may blow one candle out,
And that leaves four!

Four candles on a birthday cake,
Four, and not one more.
You may blow one candle out,
And that leaves three!

Three candles on a birthday cake,
Three, and not one more.
You may blow one candle out,
And that leaves two!

Two candles on a birthday cake,
Two, and not one more.
You may blow one candle out,
And that leaves one!

One candle on a birthday cake
We know its task is done.
You may blow one candle out,
And that leaves none!
