Felt Activities

I had a few minutes this morning to make 2 new felt activities for C.

Christmas shapes for her button snake
(snowman, poinsettia, stocking, tree, ornament, star, gingerbread)
 One of the activities on the advent chain was to make this Rudolph book I found at Little Giraffes a few years ago. Instead, I made a flannel board version after seeing the idea at Oopsey Daisy! I just don't have any pink felt, if I don't make it to the store I might have to use paper.

Here are the words to the Rudolph story

Rudolph! Rudolph!
What will you do?
You can't guide Santa
If your nose is blue!

Rudolph! Rudolph!
Santa gave a wink.
But what will he think
If your nose is pink?

Rudolph! Rudolph!
Your way cannot be seen
Through the wintry weather
If your nose is green!
Rudolph! Rudolph!
You're such a silly fellow    
Who will know it's you   
If your nose is yellow!

Rudolph! Rudolph!
How will you get back?
You can't see in the dark
If your nose is black!

Rudolph! Rudolph!
It's time to go to town.
But Santa's wearing a frown
'Cause your nose is brown!

Rudolph! Rudolph!
It's time to fly at night.
But you're quite a sight
'Cause your nose is white!

Rudolph!  Rudolph!
The children are in bed.
 And now I know you're ready
'Cause your nose is red!

Another thing I wanted to make was a button tree,
like this one at Counting Coconuts

but my felt collection is getting smaller and I don't have enough green.
It might have to wait until next year.
Oopsey Daisy also made these cute gingerbread bean bags!
