C is for Cookie!

It is always a treat getting together for preschool with our friends. This last week at my friend, Camie’s house was an especially sweet day!

We spent the morning learning, playing, singing … and eating cookies!

  • Read The ABCs of Cookies … what a perfect book to lead us from Cookie Monster into the rest of our cookie morning. My friend, Camie, found this book at Dollar Tree! Amazon does have copies available here.

  • Cookie Memory Game … I loved this activity to introduce our next book!
    1. Before reading “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” place several items from the book on a tray. Some ideas:
      • a glass of milk (play food)
      • a cookie (play food)
      • roll of tape
      • straw
      • napkin
      • box of crayons
      • a pen
      • a piece of paper
    2. Let the kids look at the items for a minute.
    3. Place a cloth over the tray.
    4. Ask the kids to name an item they remember, then pull it out and show them!

  • Who Took the Cookie From the Cookie Jar Game
    1. Use this Oreo Matchin’ Middles game. I found ours at Goodwill for $2. I’ve seen it at Wal-Mart and Target. Amazon has it here.
    2. Sing “Who Took the Cookie From the Cookie Jar”
    3. Take turns choosing one cookie from the Oreo cookie jar.
    4. Open it up and name the shape inside!
    5. Repeat the song and game for each of the kids or until the cookies are gone!

  • Lots of Dots Chocolate Chip Cookies … loved this! So many learning activities going on with this one project.
    1. Print out a page with “If I had a plate of cookies I would ______” written at the bottom. Or simply write it by hand.
    2. Use a glue stick to glue a large brown “cookie” to the page. If you have time, let the kids cut out their own circle.
    3. Let the kids use a brown do-a-dot marker (available here) to add as many chocolate chips to their cookies as they like.
    4. Let them answer the question at the bottom, “If I had a plate of cookies I would…”
    5. Then count up the chocolate chips together!

  • Online Storytime … I just found this online storytime from Barnes & Noble. I love it! They have several stories read by the authors and have been adding a new book each month. I thought it was so fun to actually hear the authors read their own book.
    1. Go here.
    2. The available books are listed at the bottom.
    3. Click on “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” (or any of them!) and listen to Laura Numeroff read her book!
