Book Advent: Day 14 {Rudolph Flannel Board}

It's almost 1:30, but here I am typing away.  I have a real problem.  I love climbing into bed and going to sleep.  But I also have a hard time stopping and going to bed!  Like many of you, I'm a night owl!  I know I'll be hating life tomorrow morning, but I still can't help myself!  Please, tell me that some of you can relate!  Or am I the only one with the night-owl disorder?!
We continued our Christmas book advent with another classic book:  Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!  This particular version was a bit long for Little Man, but we plowed our way through it.
When he woke up from his nap, he found a Rudolph flannel board.  BUT Rudolph didn't just have a red nose--he had many different colors of noses!  Little Man had fun trying on all of the different noses.  He kept trying to get the little felt noses to stick on HIS nose!  This was a great way to review colors, too.  Little Man is just beginning to say his color words.  {So exciting!}
We did a flannel board story that describes Rudolph with all different colors of noses!  Finally at the end of the story, Rudolph is ready to help Santa because his nose is red.  It's a short and sweet rhyming story--super cute!
The flannel board visual aids were super easy to make.  I just cut a face out of tan felt, antlers out of brown felt, and circles out of different colors of felt.  I just added google eyes and drew on the mouth with sharpie!
If you would like to download the Rudolph story, you can print it here or here on Scribd.
Have a happy Wednesday!
Thanks for being here!!
PS Michelle from Musings of Me also has a printable Rudolph book using this same story.  You can print the story and use colored pompoms or buttons for Rudolph's nose on each page.

    How cute! I love all of the different colored noses.
    I'm in the same boat as you, my friend. Can't wait to hit the sack, but I find that night is when the house is at its quietest, and I get the most done!

  4. I am a complete night owl! Even when I'm getting up early, I still stay up late… and burning the candle at both ends just means one very burnt-out mommy! I get all my creative juices going late at night… my best inspiration… although sometimes not my best judgment on how to carry out that inspiration…

    Thanks for sharing this cute flannel board and story! Another idea for next year 🙂

  5. What a cute idea! I am forwarding this to my daughter's preschool teacher. She is always doing flannel board activities for circle time! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Oh, I didn't think to use this story as a flannel board activity! My daughter will love this! I have used it as a book activity when I was a teacher, got the idea here –
