Where's My Peanut Butter Sandwich?

Today we did an easy and fun story retelling.

Peanut Butter Rhino is about Rhino, who makes a peanut butter sandwich for his lunch with Elephant.  He accidentally sits on his sandwich, which sticks to his bottom.  The book shows Rhino asking all his friends to help him find his sandwich, while the reader can see where it really is.  When it's finally time for lunch, Rhino is happy to discover that Elephant has packed two peanut butter sandwiches!  This book is simple enough for preschoolers to understand, appreciate, and retell but I think the humor makes it suitable for readers who are a little older too.
We've read this story lots of times, but today we decided to make our own squished peanut butter sandwiches out of construction paper.  I cut out the pieces
and Drew and Lainey assembled them with glue sticks.
Then we stuck some tape on the back and sat on them.
We had lots and lots of fun going around the house pretending to look everywhere for our peanut butter sandwiches. This was enough to entertain my little ones, but if you wanted to adapt it for older readers you could put a mystery word on their sandwich and have them try to figure it out by asking yes or no questions.
