Kindergarten Readiness – Growing a Cookie Tree

We can plant fruit seeds and get a fruit tree. Can we plant cookies and get a cookie tree?  At home or your care center find a pot, pop in some dirt, tuck a cookie into the dirt and put it in a sunny spot. Oh, and wait. While you are waiting, read Cookie Monster and the Cookie Tree. It’s a story about sharing and problem-solving. Those are two very important skills for kindergarten readiness. (Waiting can be a third one.)

Another activity while waiting is to make cookies. This is a recipe from a book called Feed Me, I’m Yours by Vicki Lansky. It even works as a breakfast cookie when needed for times like camping when there is no stove. In a blender grind 1 cup of nutritious cereal like oats, shredded wheat, etc. Pour into a bowl, stir in 1 Tablespoon of honey. Add only as much milk needed to roll into balls. Store in fridge but no waiting is needed.  

Now, if Cookie Monster had only known this super easy recipe. Do you have any others?
