Flannel Friday - Planting a Rainbow

There is nothing prettier than a rainbow of felt flowers!  I made this set of flowers last spring for Miss Sue's preschool story time.  They are based on the illustrations in Lois Ehlert's book Planting a Rainbow
And although the inspiration for this set of flowers comes from a book, there are so many more uses for it!  I love flannel sets that came be adapted to fit more than one story or rhyme.  These flowers can be used to discuss colors, flowers, rainbows, gardening, spring...  The list goes on and on! 

We have some red flowers

and orange flowers,
and some yellow blooms.
We grow something green
and some blue flowers,
and some purple flowers, too.
I chose to recreate one flower per color of the rainbow.  You could make one flower or a bouquet of flowers to tell this story!  When lined up, they make a beautiful rainbow!

Thank you so much Lisa over at Libraryland for hosting Flannel Friday this week!  Flannel Friday is such a great resource for finding amazing ideas for your next flannelboard!  You can learn more about Flannel Friday here!
