Flannel Friday! Ice Cream, Ice Cream !


This week in storytime we celebrated

 Ice cream!! 

We talked about our favorite flavors:
Strawberry, Vanilla, and Chocolate.

I made very simple felt sugar cones and single scoops in lots of colors.  Each child participated building up their favorite ice cream cone.  As we sang: 

Ice cream, Ice cream Piled High.............
Ice cream, Ice cream touch the sky ..........

We finished our creations with Cherries on Top!!!

I shared these stories with my 2 year olds:

And I also shared this story with my 3 year olds:

We also celebrated our love for ice cream by singing and playing with Debi Derryberry's Song: Scoops of Ice Cream.

Each child was given a paper water cup covered with brown paper ~ to resemble an ice cream cone.  In a plastic baggie they each received 10 poms poms.  First, I had the kids count out their ten "scoops" in a row.  Then as I played the song, they placed each "scoop" inside their "cone." 

We all had a marvelous time and since we were only playing with pom pom scoops and not real ice cream scoops, we didn't get Tummy Aches.

See you next week!
