Little Fox, Little Fox Hide and Seek Colours and Sizes Game Free Pattern

Little fox, little fox
Playing hide and seek,
Are you in the (colour) box?
Let’s take a peek

OR

Little fox, little fox
Playing hide and seek,
Are you in the large, medium, or small box?
Let’s take a peek

Little Fox

To play the game:

Little Fox behind the Yellow Box

 Hide the little fox underneath one of the present boxes

Then chant with the children:

Little Fox, little fox…..

Children take turns guessing which colour or size present box the fox is hiding under by identifying a present box by colour or size, and removing it to search underneath for the fox.

 If the child’s guess is incorrect replace box and begin again.

LIttle Fox Red Box

Inspired by lots of Flannel Friday posts

Five Apples in a Basket

Five Apples in a Basket Felt Board Magic

The first apple in the basket was bright and shiny red.
The second apple in the basket said “My ,what a cosy bed”
The third apple in the basket said “Make room for me your pair”
The fourth apple in the basket said “Please, move over there”
The fifth apple in the basket said “Oh dear, oh me, oh my!”
This basket looks like pastry—I think we’re in a pie!”

I’ve added this felt set set to my collection of Apple Harvest themed felt boards where we sort apples by size and colour. We count apples and match numerals and number words. We retell the Dr Seuss classic 10 Apples Up on Top. We sing and we chant. We play and discover and along the way we learn.
