Felt Board Giveaway!!!

I was hoping to have a holiday feltboard to post today, along with this giveaway.  Unfortunately, I spent a good portion of Thanksgiving in the ER partially unconscious because I’d been too busy with life to take the time to find out why I hadn’t felt good in a week, then my body gave me a message I couldn’t ignore.  So I’m still recovering and haven’t been to work since the day before Thanksgiving and therefore I don’t have any pictures of the feltboard I wanted to share for today’s Holiday Extravaganza Flannel Friday.  I’ll just have to post it next week with the felt board I’m planning to use in stories this coming week.

Anyhow, on to the fun part 🙂

I am giving away this fun feltboard to one lucky person who comments on this post.  Make sure you include your email when prompted to, otherwise I will have no way to contact you and you will forfeit your chance to win.  If you are uncomfortable leaving your email, mention this in your comment.  I will leave it up to you to contact me if you win.

All comments must be received by 11:59 ET time (cause that’s where I live) tomorrow night – Saturday Dec 3, 2011.  That gives everyone a full day to stop by and leave a comment.

On Sunday, my lovely daughter Fiona will draw one name from a bag and I will announce the winner on Sunday.  It may not be until the evening, depending on how busy we are with church and everything.  But it will be posted.  Once I’ve contacted the winner and have your address, I will ship out the feltboard as soon as possible.  It may be closer to the end of the week as I never had a chance to go out and buy velcro for the back, stupid pneumonia!  But other than that it’s all finished.

Good luck!!!

I like to use this feltboard with the book Old MacDonald had a Woodshop  by Lisa Shulman.

Old MacDonald had a Tool Belt
—suit actions to words
Old MacDonald had a tool belt  EIEIO
And in that belt he had a hammer EIEIO
With a bang, bang here
And a bang, bang there
Here a bang, there a bang
Everywhere a bang, bang
Old MacDonald had a tool belt  EIEIO

file–scrape, scrape
drill–bzzz, bzzz
wrench–crank, crank
saw–zip, zip
chisel-chip, chip
paint brush–swish, swish
screw driver–squeak, squeak
pencil–scritch scratch
measuring tape–slide, slide  (pretend to slide measuring tape in and out)

Sorry about the dark photos, I was working on this late last night.

The tool belt has pockets for all the tools and a loop for the hammer.  I’ve used this feltboard (only a different copy of it) several times over the last few years and the kids LOVE it.  I have at least two copies of each of the tools, in my library set, so that there are plenty for everyone to bring up a tool.  Please feel free to make extras if you would like.  I will not mind. 🙂

So that’s it.  I can’t wait to ship this out to the winner 🙂  I’ll post my Holiday Extravaganza feltboard next week if that’s ok with all you Flannel Friday-ers!

Library Quine has the roundup at her blog.  Stop by later today to find a TON of awesome holiday feltboards.

  3. It’s adorable and very clever and now I want to win it! I hope that you feel better… and for goodness’ sake, slow down again. Don’t make it two holidays in a row where your body is forcing you to stop!! Thanks for the fun giveaway!

  4. It’s a lovely set – if I win, I’d be happy to cover the extra postage as I’m in the UK (or do some kind of flannel exchange). libraryquine@gmail.com. Hope you’re feeling better soon!

  5. This is beautiful! Thanks for being part of the librarian-inspiring group! (I’m ok with winning things, by the way)

  6. It’s very fun that you’re giving away one of your feltboards to some very lucky person! So glad to hear that you’re feeling better! By the way, don’t include my email in the drawing…I’m sure one of the other “commenters” would put it to very good use!

  7. Glad to hear you are feeling better! Glad you slowed down & didn’t force yourself to finish your holiday flannel today. Your toolbelt is fabulous!

  8. So cute! Thanks for the awesome give away and glad to hear you are doing better.

  9. Oh, so cute! We used the book at Storytime this week for our The Way We Work theme. Would love to have the flannel for our collection. Thanks for your generosity!

    Hope you’ve been getting your rest and are feeling better. Enjoy the holidays!

  10. Your tool belt is fantastic! Please pass on me for the giveaway – we use magnets. Also, please look after yourself! I ignored a cough and ended up in the hospital for 13 days with pneumonia and missed my baby’s 1st birthday. I wasn’t even working back then. Don’t try to do too much too soon.

  11. Wow! So sorry to hear that you were so ill! Take care of yourself because pneumonia is not something to mess around with. 😦

    Your felt pieces are awesome! You have a good eye for details! Great job!

    My email is adventuresbeyondthebooks@yahoo.com
    I would love to win and be able to share your creativity with my storytime families. I usually use more magnetic board activities but the Flannel Friday group is definitely changing that! So much creativity and talent in this group!

    Thanks for the chance to win. Hope you have a relaxing weekend with your family!

  12. This is fantastic!!! So creative.

    Wow! You inspire me. I wish I had the time to do such elaborate flannels. Thanks for the opportunity to possibly get one.
