Flannel Friday: My Lunch Box

09/2021 Update: As I reflect on this post, I actually recommend doing this rhyme with realia instead – a real lunch box/bag and either real or pretend play food. It’s much easier to hide things! Plus, using realia helps young children make connections and build background knowledge more so than visual representations like flannelboards.

This is another fun guessing game goes great with a box or food storytime theme! Hide different treats inside the lunch box…

Do a little rhyme and encourage the kiddos to guess what’s inside!

My Lunch Box (Original)

Tune: Yankee Doodle

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
It starts with sand… and ends with …witch
A sandwich! Now I’ll eat it!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which drink is my favorite?
It starts with mmm… and ends with …ilk
My milk! Now I’ll drink it!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
It starts with ch… and ends with …ips
Some chips! Now I’ll eat them!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
It starts with cook… and ends with …ees
Some cookies! Now I’ll eat them!

I got the idea from an awesome old book/CD set from Creative Teaching Press: Fall Phonemic Awareness. Unfortunately, it’s no longer in print. Here’s my own spin:

My Lunch Box (Adapted)

Tune: Yankee Doodle

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
It’s made of bread and a peanut butter jelly spread…
A sandwich! Now I’ll eat it!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
It’s yellow and long and eventually turns brown
A banana! Now I’ll eat it!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
They’re yellow and crunchy and oh so salty…
My chips! Now I’ll eat them!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which drink is my favorite?
It’s white and smooth and good for you…
My milk! Now I’ll drink it!

My lunch box holds some yummy treats
Which food is my favorite?
It’s round and brown and the last thing to go down…
A cookie! Now I’ll eat it!
