Candy canes on the flannel board in preschool

in Candy Cane Flannel Board, Flannel Board Stories

I made this simple candy cane flannel board activity with colorful pieces of felt and set it out in a basket on the floor for the children to play with….

I added felt color strips for the candy cane stripes.  Originally, I was only going to make red and green stripes but in just about every holiday activity we have done so far, my students have asked me for a “pink marker” or a “purple crayon” and so I realized that I need to be more open minded about colors during the holidays…

After all, a yellow, green, purple, and red candy cane is far more fun to make!

Some of the children carefully placed their candy canes on the board in a clear pattern and others preferred a more free approach to this activity…

This is the type of activity I leave up for several weeks. My felt board is always on the wall for the children to stop by any time they wish and give it a try….

Some of the children will come back to the felt board over and over again and other will try it once and never come back.  I switch out the felt board activities regularly but I also leave them there long enough for the children to have plenty of opportunity to explore at their leisure…

The candy cane felt board has been very popular over all…
