Flannel Friday - Lenny in the Garden!

This week in Baby Story Time we read books about bugs, and this adorable picture book by Ken Wilson-Max was just perfect!
(thanks to Mel's Desk for introducing it to me!)

I thought the illustrations were a little small to see from a distance, so I decided to make each insect out of felt!

First, Lenny sees an ant and a spider:

Next, a worm and a butterfly:
(note: worm = easiest felt piece ever!)

A caterpillar and a "ladybird":
(fun fact: Ken lives in London, obviously! He also writes "Mummy" on the first page!)

A snail and a grasshopper:
(I'm in love with this grasshopper, btw!)

And finally, a bumblebee:

And here is little Lenny, himself!:
This was a fun and easy set to make, and I can see using them in many different ways! Keep an eye out for my "Bugs" Baby Story Time, coming soon!  Happy Flannel Friday!
