Flannel Friday: Nocturnal Animals Flannelboard

March 30, 2012

A storytime theme sure to come up at some point during the Summer Reading Program is nocturnal animals. Beginning with one of the owls I made from Sunflower Storytime’s template, I made animals to place on the flannelboard while we listen to the song, “Nocturnal Animals” by Nancy Music. Both lyrics and music are available at the site.

On a moonlit night when the stars come out
There are nocturnal animals all about.

Each verse introduces a different animal beginning with an owl.


Cat (mine is grey so it shows up on the nighttime flannelboard. Easy lyric adaptation)

Button Eye Cat


Bat Flannel

Tree Frog

Dormouse (looks more like a short-legged capybara or a hamster, but hamsters are nocturnal so “it’s all good”)
