Birthday Rhymes

In honor of a certain blogging youth librarian's birthday coming up (*cough*), here is a BONUS #FlannelFriday post(!!) perfect for baby, toddler, or preschool storytimes. I free-hand cut all of these so no patterns exist (sorry!)

"Birthday Candles" by Mary Marshall and "Five Candles" by Roberts can both be done like so:



 Someday I hope to redo the candles as they look like creepy witch fingers to me. But today is not that day!



"A Cat Had a Birthday" from Sesame Street



Birthday rhymes available at Addison Library's Children's Department's Story Totes page. (PDF)

Time for cake! Party on, dudes!

I will absolutely be using this one! I've got birthday storytime planned during my own birthday week this summer.

Happy early birthday!

Put the flames above the candles instead of on them and they will be good to go:)
