Teddy Wore His Red Hat

This flannel board is the creation of one of my fellow children’s librarians. I like not only how each hat is a different color but that it matches a job or community helper that children know. “Teddy Wore His Red Hat” is an easy flannel board to have children help participate in. You can pass out the hats before hand and a child can bring up the matching color of hat as you sing the song.

tune: Mary Wore Her Red Dress

Teddy wore his red hat, red hat, red hat,
Teddy wore his red hat all day long.

Teddy wore his white hat…
Teddy wore his yellow hat…
Teddy wore his purple hat…
Teddy wore his blue hat…
Teddy wore his orange hat…
Teddy wore his green hat…
Teddy wore his gray hat…
Teddy wore his brown hat…
Teddy wore his striped hat…

Five Little Teddy Bears

This is one of my earlier flannels that I will end up remaking at some point. I am not crazy about the faces or how dark the felt is.

Five little teddy bears standing side by side.
The first one said, “I’m shy, so I will hide.”
The second one said, “Put your hand up, gimme five!”
The third one said, “Give me some honey from the hive.”
The fourth one said, “Lets run and run and run.”
The fifth one said, “I’m having so much fun!”

Teddy Bear Bandage

This was inspired by Storytime Katie. Instead of a stuffed teddy bear I made a felt teddy bear instead because the band-aids wouldn’t stay on the stuffed one. I made ten band-aids for this flannel. It is enough for each child to have a turn to come up and put one on the teddy bear. I rarely have more than ten toddlers at my storytime. You can always make more band-aids as needed. This teddy bear is about 14 inches long. It needs to be large enough to see and have room for all the band-aids.

“Oh, no! Teddy’s paw hurts! Please put a band-aid there to help him feel better!”

Have each child put a Band-Aid on each part of teddy bear that hurts.
