This is my very first blog and I decided to post my "creations" I used for storytime. I used these two different props for last month's theme, National Chicken Month. The first prop I used is titled, Five Little Chicks. I used the finger-play Five Little Ducks, just substituted it with baby chicks.

This prop can be used for all ages, birth to 5 years-old. I decided to use goggly eyes to create some type of sound/rhythm. As you can see, the baby chicks are on a glove. They can easily be detached from the glove and  used on a felt board.

My next activity is a hide and seek game. The children had fun counting the eggs and learning colors. I found it really cute when they were guessing which egg the chick was in.

  1. Very cute, Natasha! I have been doing children's programs for 11 years, but have just started trying to channel my "artsy" side. In fact, I'm just now discovering it!

  2. Thank you.It is always good to hear from other people who do children's programs.
