Flannel Friday Inspiration Post: Ice Cream Flannelboard

November 18, 2011

Mollie made an ice cream flannelboard back when the weather was warm, but ice cream is good year-round, right? Being such a fan of food-themed storytimes, I made not 1 but 2 versions, felt and milk filter. I like the bright colours of the felt better, but the milk filters work well as tracing paper so I cut the two layers at the same time and ended up with two versions in one go. I don’t do this for fancy flannelboards, but for simple ones I do and put the second set in my travel collection (for that day when I work overseas). Two versions can also come in handy if your library has multiple staff doing outreach, especially around holidays when everybody is maneuvering for the Five Little Pumpkins.

Ice Cream Cones Flannel

The pattern is from Felt Board Fun by Liz and Dick Wilmes.

There’s an Ice Cream Storytime over at Step by Step with lots of rhymes these can be used with. As well, Ice Cream Song can be found in The Big Book of Stories, Songs, and Sing-Alongs by Beth Maddigan and Stefanie Drennan.

    I know what you mean about the felt colors, but I do like how easy it seems to be to add some outline and detail to the milk filters! I really need to order some and play with them a bit!

    I’m with Melissa – gotta order me some milk filters so I can get those great details. Your ice cream (both sets!) looks awesome… our Summer Reading theme is “Reading is So Delicious”, so I’ll be filing this one away for any summer storytimes I might find myself doing! Thanks for sharing!
