Here’s a flannel good for birthdays, parties, or color storytime. I free-handed the balloons, then attached a piece of yarn with a hot glue gun (I wrapped it around once before gluing so it would look like it was tied on). Once again, I put the color words on my flannels to help with word recognition.
Here are balloons for a party
Because it’s my birthday today.
I have balloons for all of my friends
Who are coming over to play.
Here is a pretty round blue balloon,
As blue as a baby’s eyes.
And here is a bright round red balloon,
Just about your size!
Here is a happy round yellow balloon,
As yellow as bright sunshine,
And here is a lovely round purple balloon,
Like purple grapes on a vine.
Here is a little round orange balloon,
Like oranges from the store.
And here is a light round white balloon,
And now there are no more!
Since the kids will invariably ask “where’s the green one? Where’s the pink one?” I ask the kids what colors we still need. So we add a green, pink, brown and black balloon.
