Who Ate All the Cookie Dough?

Who Ate all the Cookie Dough flannel

Karen Beaumont’s Who Ate All the Cookie Dough? is a new spin on the classic Who Stole the Cookies song. My flannel and puppet story collections are similar because I just love some of these stories so much, I make flannel pieces, then learn to tell it with puppets. My favorite piece is Mama Kangaroo (with the culprit, Joey!):

Cookie Mama

This new version features jungle animals, and it’s the perfect story to showcase your puppet skills. Here’s a list of animals you can use (of course, you can substitute for puppets you have in your collection):

  • Lion
  • Cheetah
  • Zebra
  • Hippo
  • Llama
  • Monkey
  • Kanga

Kangaroo craft

I pair this story with a Kangaroo craft. You just need to score Mama’s pouch ahead of time, so Joey can pop in and out.

Here’s a video clip of the story:

    This is great! Puppets are my weak point, but I would love to try to use some in storytime sometimes. Great inspiration. – Miss Sue
