Gingerbread cookies
[felt board rhyme]
Gingerbread cookies what a treat!
Now it's time for me to eat.

First I'll eat the one that's red.
I'll strat by nibbling on his head.

Next I'll eat the one that's blue.
I'll start by biting off his shoe.

Third, I'll eat the one that's yellow.
Ummm, he's such a tasty fellow.

Last, I'll eat the one that's green.
Do you think that's awfully mean?
