Flannel Friday - Two Little Blackbirds

I love using nursery rhymes in Baby Story Time! It is so vitally important to pass these on to our children, both for the history and tradition, as well as for their role in developing early literacy skills!

I found these simple finger puppets for Two Little Blackbirds (including a free template!) on Kids' Brain.  Their directions are very easy to follow!
Here's the rhyme:
Two little blackbirds sitting on a hill,
One named Jack, the other named Jill.
Fly away, Jack! Fly away, Jill!
Come back, Jack! Come back, Jill!

Here's my take on them:

Each bird is two pieces of black felt, glued together along the edges.  The edge of the beak is glued in between them.

I glued the wings at different angles so you could see both wings from either side.  For the eyes I used small sequins, one on each side.  I think they turned out pretty cute, and they were very easy to make!

Happy Flannel Friday!

Thanks so much to Linda at Notes from the Story Room for hosting this week! Flannel Friday is for anyone interested in finding and sharing great flannel board ideas!  You can learn more about Flannel Friday and how to participate here.


  1. They're adorable. Fall story time session ends next week and I have a number of felt finger puppets I want to make. I like the colorful wings. Think I have to make these as well. Thanks ~ jane
