Flannel Friday: Cookies!

This week Flannel Friday is brought to you by this amazing blog post from Ikatbag (found via Pinterest) and a fabulous rhyme from Melissa!

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!

Mollie is hosting this week’s Flannel Friday — you can find the round-up at her blog! Melissa is the founder of Flannel Friday! Anne has the archive and schedule of who is hosting Flannel Friday.

    These seem like a lot of work, but they are probably any little kid’s dream gift. Gosh, I think I’ll be busy when birthdays come around! These are spectacular! Great job!

    I just used this rhyme in my storyhour today! But a little differently:
    Down around the corner at the bakery shop, there were __#__ little cookies with sugar on top.
    Along came (child’s name), all alone, she picked up the (color) one and she ran home.
    As usual, I was in a rush so I just cheated with my flannels, did a clipart of a cookie and printed it out on five different colors of paper. But it was so much fun I think I will try to make a nice flannel set.

      I actually used a cookie cutter as my template. I traced its shape on a piece of paper to get me the design I wanted. Hope this helps your class!

    I just used this for Thanksgiving week, replacing
    “Were five little cookies with sprinkles on top”
    “Were five pumpkin pies with whipped cream on top”

    (and since I didn’t have time to make fancy flannel pies I just found a great photo to print and laminate!)
