This flannel board I copied from Wendy at Flannel Board Fun. The set has pieces for articles of clothing for cold weather as well as for rain. I’ve included the cold portion here. It is sung to For He’s A Jolly Good Fellow. Since the tune is simple, is is easy for kids to pick up on and join in.

“Caps for Sale” was adapted from the book by Esphyr Slobodkina by a fellow children’s librarian. The original text was a bit cumbersome to be told as a flannel board story and was adapted to make retelling easier. Since the peddler scolds the monkeys several different times, you can have the children respond as if they are the monkeys by either shaking their fingers, stamping their feet, or throwing their pretend caps on the ground.
