I used this in Jobs storytime, and I plan to use it when I do a sweets-themed program. And who knows when else?
First, I did pat-a-cake and rolled out the flannel pieces on the board. Afterwards the kids and I “frosted” our flannel and make-believe cookies to sell in our shop, which led us to our rhyme:
Down around the corner in the bakery shop
Were five little cookies with sprinkles on top…
Along came someone with a nickel to pay
And they bought a little cookie and they took it away.
This was a great rhyme to use and the kids really enjoyed the interactive portion of the flannel. It was a LOT of work, but again it’s something that I really enjoy doing in my spare time, so I’m not bothered at all by a lot of work!
