Treasure Boxes

I decided to have a storytime on Treasures with pirate treasure only a very small part of it.  I found some small, colored boxes at Hobby Lobby and used small items around my office to create a rhyme.


 
TREASURE BOXES
 
What is in the (yellow) box?
What can it be?
Is it a treasure?
Let's look and see!
 
(repeat with each different color box)
 
A frog is a treasure for a boy named Ben;
An apple is a treasure for a hungry wren.
A bee is a treasure when you want honey for your tea;
And candy is a treasure when you're hungry like me.
A cat is a treasure when you're looking for a friend--
So now we've found our treasures and this is the end.
 
 
I used the following books:
  • THE TREASURE CHEST by Dominique Falda
  • RUSSELL AND THE LOST TREASURE by Rob Scotton
  • TREASURE by Suzanne Bloom
  • WHAT A TREASURE! by Jane Hillenbrand
This can easily be adapted to the flannelboard, which would make it easier to store.  These would also work well with a color theme and colors could easily be switched out.
 
Tracey at 1234 More Storytimes is hosting Flannel Friday this week, so check out all the other fun ideas there!
