If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

If You Give a Mouse a Cookies activities

We have really been enjoying picking a book and then doing activities centered around that book for a week.  Our latest book was If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff.


Hunter really liked making a puffy paint chocolate chip cookie.  He mixed up shaving cream, glue, and brown paint.


Then he spread the paint mixture onto a paper plate.


Finally he added some chocolate chips.  When it dries it is puffy and it is really fun to touch and poke at it.


I cut out some brown circles and numbered them 1-10.  Then we counted out the correct number of chocolate chips to add to each one.  This took a little while to finish because the chocolate chips kept disappearing ;-)


In the story the mouse draws a picture of his family, so Hunter drew a picture of his family.


Hunter practiced writing some lines.  (from Royal Baloo)


And of course, how could we read If You Give a Mouse a Cookie without making cookies?  So, we baked chocolate chips cookies together.


Hunter thought they were yummy!


Hailey wanted to help with the taste testing too.

Hunter definitely loved this story and asked to hear it over and over again!  We are having lots of fun in preschool!

    What a great way to tie everything together. I bet that made the story so much more fun and I love the idea of counting with chocolate chips.
