C is for Cookie

This week Wes and I read Mmm, Cookies! He thought this book was hilarious and asked me to read it over and over again. If you aren't familiar with Robert Munsch, you have to check out some of his books. Kids think that they are so funny. Here are my children's Munsch favorites.

Mmm, Cookies!
A boy tricks his family with play dough cookies.

Stephanie's Ponytail (Annikins)
A little girl tries to be original by wearing unique hairstyles.

Alligator Baby
Kristen's parents just can't seem to do anything right. First they have their baby at the zoo, not in a hospital. Then, they accidentally bring home an baby alligator instead!

Here are some of the activities we did to go along with Mmm, Cookies:

1. A Cookie Jar Game - I printed the cookie jar blackline and chocolate chip cookie printables. Then I made a set of number flash cards. Wes would pull a card, identify the number, and place that amount of cookies in the cookie jar.

When Wes was finished with the game he chose a final flash card, identified the number on it, and glued that amount of cookies onto the cookie jar.

2. Play Dough Cookies - Wes made a big, huge play dough cookie and tricked his sisters with it!

3. Letter "C" Collage -Wes cut pictures of cookies out of grocery store circulars and glued them to the large "C".

Thanks for linking to me! We read some of Munsch books - Angela's Airplane was our favorite. I didn't like some others, because children behave naughty and get away with it. But the cookie book sounds interesting - I'll look for it in the library. And those play-doh cookies look literally too good to be true :)

I don't think we have read any Munsch books. If we have I don't remember them. I will have to look for some.
