Hi everyone! The weather outside is cold and snowy and so I thought we should have a storytime about sweet things like cupcakes and candy.
Welcome song –So Happy You’re Here Today – Hap Palmer

Book – If You Give a Cat a Cupcake by Laura Numeroff – A series of increasingly far-fetched events might occur if someone were to give a cupcake to a cat.
Rhyme – “Five Little Candies”
Five little candies on the shelf at the store.
CRUNCH [I act like I’m eating one and then put it behind the felt board]… and then there were four.
Four little candies, sweet as could be.
Three little candies, red, pink, and blue.
CRUNCH… and then there were two.
Two little candies, melting in the sun.
CRUNCH… and then there was one.
One little candy, looking so yummy.
CRUNCH… they’re all in my tummy!
Song – “If All the Raindrops”
