Flannel Friday - 5 Little Monsters Sleeping in My Bed!

For my preschool story time this month, I decided on a not-so-scary monster theme.  Thanks to finding several sweet poems on Guybrarian's Blog, I was inspired to make these cute monsters:

5 Little Monsters Sleeping in My Bed!

5 little monsters sleeping in my bed.
One crawled out from under the spread.
I called out to Mama and my Mama said:
"No more Monsters Sleeping in your bed!"

Continue with 4,3,2,1, and

No more Monsters sleeping in my bed
None crawled out from under the spread
I called out to Mama and my Mama said:
"No more Monsters, now go to bed!!"

If you would like to see how I used this in Story Time - I have a Blog post about it!  Click HERE for more.

I made a template so the kids could take it home, color it, and retell the poem.  You can use my template below if you would like (but please only for personal use and credit this blog is all I ask in return), but they were just so easy to do by looking at samples of monster clip art.  Really, I just made the sausage looking one on paper and decided it was the right size, and drew out the rest, then drew them on felt with puffy paint and adding features later. There is NO right or wrong with drawing monsters, so GO FOR IT!  The bed is strips of brown with two knobs, and the blanket is a white blob to fit.  Easy peasy!
