Will There Be Enough Room?!

I have been wanting to do a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom flannel board ever since I saw Miss Mollie over at What Happens in Storytime... shared hers. This month I finally got my chance when I had to do a presentation over Toddler Storytimes and this rhythm and rhyme storybook was one of only two flannel board options. If you must know, the other option was Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?. It is my goal to have a complete felt-only Brown Bear soon enough. That and a Where is the Green Sheep? one. Yes, you may get excited at that last one because I am!!!!

Anyway, back to the chicka chicka boom boom-ness. I traced the tree from the book with a sheet of tracing paper. I, then, traced it onto different color felts to create the varying colors of green. A hot glue proved to be rather handy in creating the tree canopy and adding the coconuts at the end because there were so many labels. The letters were created by using my library's die cuts. I can't wait until I let the children play with this one!
