If you're new to Oopsey Daisy, I try to share everything with you. My journey in creativity goes in many different directions and believe me, it is definitely not a smoothly paved road. There are plenty of bumps and the occasional bruise along the way! But my philosophy is why not share the process with you?! I learn so much from others' amazing talent that I am constantly inspired.
On Fridays, I try to give back by offering some kind of freebie. Probably because I am a former first grade teacher, many freebies end up being child-related. It's been a couple of weeks since I offered a freebie! Blame it on the summer craziness, I guess! I genuinely don't create printables simply to create them. Everything I share with you is something I am honestly using in my own home in some way.
Today, I am thinking back to the ongoing list in my head of things I want to be doing. In this post, I explained my organization for my Family Home Evening files. I ambitiously set out to create a new "unit" each month. Admittedly, I have not met my goal and feel a bit guilty about the mess of files, pictures, stories, and games just sitting in my closet! But I am currently almost done with a unit on Manners. I stumbled across a flannel board story that I collected in college! I retyped it, laminated it, and it's ready to go! Now it is ready to share with you!
In all honesty, I find this story absolutely hilarious! To sum up, it's the story of Pudgy the Pig, a fat little pig who learns to be polite at mealtimes in the barnyard. I crack up every time I read it! But it is a great story to teach mealtime manners to our kids in a fun way!
The download includes the story and the visual aids of Farmer Brown and the animals. Here is a sneak peek of the animals. Aren't they cute?! I do love the farm theme! :)
You can download the entire story and corresponding visual aids here.
Thanks for making Oopsey Daisy part of your day!
