Fortune Cookies with Buddies

              Today when we met with our big buddies we shared our
                                  Icky Sticky Bubble Gum song.

  Then we introduced Lunar New Years with a book called Fortune Cookies.

It’s a small book but the pictures are uncluttered and have little text.  The book tells the story of a child that receives seven fortune cookies and she opens one per day of the week.  Each day there is a fortune to read and you try to guess what might happen.

After reading the story we made felt fortune cookies.

I had precut the circles and made short pieces of pipe cleaners.  The big buddies wrote fortunes either before we got together or there with their little buddies.

Then using a glue gun they first glued the pipe cleaner in the centre of the felt circle, place the fortune on it, then folded the circle in half adding one more dot of glue to seal it.

                 The pipe cleaner lets you bend and shape the cookie.
