Who Stole the Cookie?

Fun Circle Game! “Who took the cookie from the cookie jar?”

I used to love playing this when I was at school.

– Have a set of cards made up – all are blank except for one that has a cookie drawn or printed on it.
– Have students sit in a circle & hand out cards, face down, so no one knows who has the cookie card.
– Get the kids to start a beat by clapping their hands & then their legs (hands, legs, hands, legs). Once in unison start the song…

“Teacher: Who took the cookie from the cookie jar?
Lisa took the cookie from the cookie jar.

Lisa: Who me? (She will turn her card over, it’s blank)

Class: Yes you.

Lisa: Couldn’t be.

Class: Then who took the cookie from the cookie jar?

Lisa: Johnny took the cookie from the cookie jar.

Johnny: Who me? (Checks card & discovers he has the cookie*)

Class: Yes you.

Johnny: Yes! I took the cookie from the cookie jar!

*Keep the song going until the person who has the cookie card is revealed!
