Dig into Reading! Grab yourself a book and ...MARCH... right into "the ground to get out of the rain... Boom Boom Boom" Oh, and please take some ants with you. I am pushing the flannel envelope people! Just want you to know that. I do not like ants. Irrational fear of ants over here - been this way since adulthood. And now, I'm making flannel ants. Last week I came face to face with my fear of sharks when I flannelized that bad boy and this week... creepy crawly ant parts. And this is my choice! What the heck am I doing to myself? Could this possibly become: Flannel-what-you-fear-Friday?
Click here for an adorable version of the song. I wrote that sentence to be nice, to try a positive spin - but truly...there is no such thing as an adorable ant. The song is catchy - I agree. Kids like it, yep! Kids like ants - what can I say? I used to like them too, when I was a kid!
I sketched the pattern and started taping and cutting this afternoon. I have more ants to make...but here's a few to get us going. Oh...ants, fun!
Marching one by one
There's never just one ant...
I think they look sort of goofy. Alien ants? Anyway - these are my ants! It's pouring buckets here in Connecticut - so all of our ants are marching into the ground for a night of reading. How perfect!!
P.S. (Piper Script): I love digging for ants. Oh, and we found a really cool science experiment for ants. Check out this National Geographic site!
