Where is Robot? Flannelboard

Inspired by Lady Librarian's Where is Robot game, here's my take!

I used a set of bulletin board gears that I laminated and added Velcro dots to the back for the gears. The robot is clip art from Canva that I printed onto a milk filter. I also added a Velcro dot to his back so he would stick better behind a gear.

“Where is Robot?”
Robot, robot, we know you’re here!
Are you behind the (color) gear?

Similar games are Baby Raccoon, Little Mouse, Little Moon, Little Worm Hide and Seek, etc.

"I Have a Pet" Flannel board

I Have a Pet
I have a pet. He is a dog. And he goes, "Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof. Woof woof."
Additional verses:
…She is a cat. And she goes, "Meow” (7x)
…He is a bird. And he goes, "Tweet (7x)
…She is a fish. And she goes, "Glub” (7x)
…He is a rabbit. And he goes “twitch” (7x)
…She is a hamster. And she goes “run” (7x)

Flannel pieces from Target's dollar spot (not sold online) in July 2019. You could also easily do this with puppets or other props. I shared a similar idea previously. 

Build a 'Bot Flannel Action Activity

Inspired by the Build a Castle activity that has been shared by several fellow bloggers, I adapted the idea for our new robot storytime tub.

I bought some felt shapes from the Target dollar spot (3 packs of 24 for $3 each) and the idea is for the kids to build 1 (or more, depending on your branch's audience size) robot cooperatively.

The picture below is just a sample robot I designed while testing this idea. You could also use a die with robot parts labeled on it to decide in what to order to add them (head, arms, legs, feet, trunk, and maybe a free choice would give you 6 options).
