Ring Around the Rosie


Let each child make his/her own pizza vest.

  • Provide a brown paper grocery bag for each child.
  • Cut a hole in the flat bottom of the bag; the child's head will fit through that hole.
  • Cut pizza-slice shapes from the front and back of the bag. (Do this by cutting from the center of the bottom front up to the left corner at the shoulders; then cut from the center bottom to the right corner at the shoulders. Repeat on the back. You will have created two pizza-slice "flaps" of vest with the wide part of each slice at the student's shoulders and the narrow points of the slices down at his or her center beltline. Discard all scraps of bag, including the sides and the parts of the front and back that have been cut away to create the slice.)

Let each child use crayons to decorate his/her pizza slices, wear the special vest, and say this little rhyme:

I'm a special piece of pizza
Topped with lots of cheese.
I also have ____(pepperoni, mushrooms, meatballs)
My favorite, if you please.
