Flannel Friday: 5 White and Fluffy Sheep

"Five White and Fluffy Sheep"
Sung to the tune of "Five Green and Speckled Frogs"
from Miss Meredith's Lamb Story Box.

Five white and fluffy sheep
In the pasture fast asleep
Their wool kept them warm all night long.
Snore, Snore!
The farmer ran away with one,
Sheared her wool til he was done.
Now there are four white fluffy sheep.
Repeat: 4, 3, 2, 1

One fluffy sheep and one regular sheep. I pulled the wool off the sheep for each verse.

Have I mentioned how much I love the Ellison Die-Cut?

Here is a craft to go with the lamb theme. The idea came from, but I tweaked it for toddlers.

And a couple of sheepish books!

Mollie is the hostess with the mostess this week! Check out more great flannel story ideas.


  1. Cute sheep! I love the green wiggle eyes of your sheep craft. :o)

    1. Thanks! We usually use sticker eyes, so the children were very excited about these.

  2. I laughed so hard at "Snore, snore!" I bet the kids love this one.

    1. Yep, they all snored with me. I always ask who they know who snores. This week it was grandpa.

  3. Where is the Green Sheep by Mem Fox is another great one.

    Love the use of the song!!! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Great suggestion! That was in the box, too, but I had used it recently in our Mem Fox storytime. I almost made the sheep different colors to go with it.
