Making Cookies

I am making cookie dough, (point to self)

Round and round the beaters go, (rotate hands over each other)

Add some flour from a cup, (pretend to pour flour in)

Stir and mix the batter up, (pretend to stir)

Roll them, cut them, nice and neat, (pretend to roll out cookies)

Put them on a cookie sheet, (hold hands out flat in front of you)

Bake them, count them… one, two, three, (count with fingers)

Then serve them to my friends for tea! (pretend to pass cookies out)

Good Things to Eat

Will you have spaghetti, (wiggle fingers up and down)

Or a piece of pie? (make triangle with fingers)

How about a cookie? (make circle with hands)

Then so will I ! (pretend to eat cookies)
