This week we read and listened to the book Marsupial Sue Presents "The Runaway Pancake" by John Lithgow. We did some gingerbread man activities this week and from my perspective this story has a similar storyline to the famous Gingerbread man story.
For the craft we simply painted a paper plate and added some googly eyes, a nose and a mouth. (I added some feet though the runaway pancake only rolled in the book.)
We also made some Puffy Oven Pancakes for dinner.
It was a great way to bring a fun story to life. The only down side is that once you have listened to the audio book you get the song stuck in your head.
