Cookies! Cookies! Cookies!

The Doorbell Rang by Pat Hutchins is a picture book classic. It is a cumulative tale perfect for preschoolers and cookie lovers alike. A group of children is about to enjoy a plate of cookies together when the doorbell rings and now there is one more person to share the cookies. No problem. The only thing is that the doorbell keeps ringing and ringing and ringing!

In the mood for a cookie now? Try making this no bake recipe with your preschooler:

No-Bake Cookies
1/2 cup (80 g) raisins
1/2 cup (75 g) chopped dates
2 tablespoons (60 g) of honey
3 graham crackers

Pour raisins, dates, and honey into mixing bowl. Put the graham crackers in a ziplock sandwich bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Add to honey and fruit mixture. Mix until the ingredients are able to form balls. Roll into balls. Let dry and serve.

Recipe is from Creating Readers : Over 1000 Games, Activities, Tongue Twisters, Fingerplays, Songs, and Stories to Get Children Excited About Reading by Pam Schiller (pg 120-121).
