Flannel Friday: Mailing Letters

This week's Flannel Friday post actually features flannel, a rarity for me.  This is a really easy one that I have used with a letter/mail theme but could also work with a Valentine theme.

I think my letters need a little ironing!
 Very simple, I made several envelopes and addressed them to family members (ie. Mom, Dad, Brother, Grandma, the dog, whom ever) and we sang the song A Tisket A Tasket.  If you are not familiar with the song it goes:
(Same tune as It's raining, it's pouring)
A tisket, a tasket, a green and yellow basket.
I wrote a letter to my mom, and on the way I dropped it.
I dropped it, I dropped it, on the way I dropped it,
A little girl picked it up and put in in her pocket.

To spice things up a little, I hid an animal flannel piece under each letter and when we sang 'I dropped it' I pulled the letter away to reveal the animal.  Then, instead of singing 'a little girl picked it up' we would sing the animal's name, ie. 'a little kitty picked it up, meow, meow, meow.'

You can find the rest of this week's round-up with Melissa over at Mel's Desk, you can see past round-ups at Anne's blog So Tomorrow, or you can click the button to the right to see Flannel Friday on Pinterest.
