Flowers feltboard

Here's my latest felt board creation:

And here's the rhyme I used with it:

Five pretty flowers in my garden grew.
"Hmmm," I said, "I bet they smell good too!"
I bent down to sniff, but they tickled my nose.
Aaah-Choo! Oh no! (with exaggeration!)
Away one flower blows! (remove 1 flower, repeat rhyme & continue count down)

I sang this to the tune of "Five Little Ducks." I have to say, I did not expect for the kids in my storytime to find sneezing so very, very hilarious, but they really did! This felt board story was a lot of fun. If I'd had a little more time, I would have created leaves and stems, so that I could just pop off the heads of the flowers one by one, but they worked well enough on their own, and were attractive and easy to make.
