Happy Fourth! The amazing Katie at Secrets and Sharing Soda has the round up this week. I am counting the days until our August storytime break and the end of summer reading so I can dig in and make some more new flannelboards! Meanwhile, I am pulling out another super-easy flannel from my files this week to share.
These are round circles of tan construction paper, with freehand cut white frosting shapes glued on top, and the sprinkles are just markers. You can’t really tell in the photo, but one cookie has orange sprinkles and one has red.
I use these cookies and sing “Down Around the Corner.” Sing it to “Five Little Ducks Went Out to Play.”
Down around the corner at the bakery shop
Were five little cookies with sprinkles on top
Along came someone with a nickel to pay
And they bought the blue cookie and they took it away.
You can use this for lots of storytime themes, Eating obviously, but also Neighborhood or Jobs (to go with a book about a baker maybe), or Colors. It’s also a good one to bring out at the holidays, if you want to have a seasonal storytime without being Christmas-centric: Everybody can get behind some sprinkle cookies!
