Flannel Friday - Must Be Santa!

Last year our fabulous teen librarian, Miss Carol, came up with a great idea to get a large group involved in the song/book "Must Be Santa."  She made props that each child can hold up!

Her artwork was based on the book Must Be Santa by Tim Moore, illustrated by Pete Whitehead:

The song was originally written by Hal Moore and Bill Fredericks, and you gotta love the version by Raffi:

So..."Who's got a beard that's long and white? Santa's got a beard that's long and white!"
       "Who comes around on a special night? Santa comes around on a special night!"
"Special night! Beard that's white! Must be Santa, Must be Santa,
Must be Santa, Santa Claus!"

"Who wears boots and a suit of red?..."
"Who wears a long cap on his head?..."

"Who's got a big red cherry nose?..."
"Who laughs this way? 'Ho, ho, ho!'..."

"Who very soon will come our way?..."
"Eight little reindeer pull his sleigh!..."

With about six copies of each prop, we had plenty for our big holiday crowds last year, and the children were delighted!  It is so much fun to involve every child in story time, and we hope to use these props year after year!  Right now they are just are cardstock, so we definitely need to get them laminated soon!

Happy Holidays from Miss Kristen, Miss Kristie and Miss Sue (and Miss Carol!)! This has been a great year for us! Thanks for welcoming us into the blogging world!


  1. Adorable! Do you have a pattern you would share?

    1. Sorry, Lisa, we don't have the patterns. These were drawn by hand by a coworker. You could probably find some simple clipart to use online - try Google Images.
