My contribution to this week’s Flannel Friday is a flannel matching game that works well with a birds, shapes or colors theme! I swear I saw something similar to this idea on an old Flannel Friday post (back when FF first started), but I’ve looked at our Pinterest page and couldn’t find it, so I decided to contribute mine.
For this matching game, I made several bird houses, each with a different shaped entrance. Then I made different shaped birds to match with the houses (after much consideration, I decided to color-code them as well). To play the game, I put the houses up on the board, and then the children help me find the right house for each bird. The shapes I used were tiny circle, big oval, triangle and rectangle. If I ever feel up to it, I’ll make other shapes to add to it.
Since this flannel set is shapes based, it was pretty easy to make. A rough template is below if you’re interested (the pieces are a bit big):
