Cookie Maker, Cookie Baker Online Book Activities

Children love to help bake cookies. In this Twiggle Book children read about the the tools and steps that are needed to make cookies. Lily and Twiggi gather together the materials and ingredients they will need. Then, they mix, roll, cut, bake, and decorate until they have a delicious treat!

Before Reading

Ask your children if they have ever helped to make cookies. Ask: Which kind of cookies did you make? Do you like cookies? What do we need to make cookies? Explain that Lily and Twiggi want to make cookies. Say: Let's read or listen to the story Cookie Maker, Cookie Baker.

During Reading

Ask children to look at the illustrations on each page to help them understand the vocabulary and the story. Encourage children to make predictions about what happens next. Ask questions like, "What else do you think Lily and Twiggi need?" Afterwards, give children a chance to read the book together with you or aloud to you. 

After Reading

Talk about the story and list the steps Lily and Twiggi had to take to make cookies. Use words like first, next, then, and last. Let children play the Cookie Maker, Cookie Baker game to place the pictures in sequencial order. Let children color the coloring page or write and draw to expand on the story. For independent reading, print out the printable version of the booklets.

Language / Math

Cut five round cookie shapes from brown, green, yellow, purple, and red felt, craft foam, or thick paper. Let children help decorate the cookie shapes with glitter glue to add some frosting or sprinkles. Put all the cookies on the cookie sheet and remove them one at a time as you recite the rhyme below. Use a spatula as a prop. You can also use the cookies on a felt board.
