Cookie Gobbler

1 very large cookie

2 tablespoons frosting (any flavor that goes well with the cookie)

20 straight thin pretzels

1 stick red licorice, cut into two 2 1/2″ (6.5 cm) pieces

1 cashew nut

4 peanut halves

6 tiny, round candies

  1. 1.

    Spread 1 1/2 tablespoons of the frosting on the cookie. (The frosting must be thick enough to firmly hold the pretzels.)

  2. 2.

    Using the pretzels, licorice pieces, peanut halves, and 4 tiny, round candies, follow the illustration to make the tail, neck, legs, and feet.

  3. 3.

    To make the head, glob the remaining frosting in the center of the cookie, near the top of the licorice sticks.

  4. 4.

    Using the cashew nut and 2 tiny, round candies, follow the illustration to make the beak and the eyes.

Your Gobbler is ready to be gobbled!

Snuggle Time

I love to lie in bed at night
And listen to the storm.
I pull the covers up real tight,
Then snuggle down clear out of sight,
Till I am toasty warm.
