Who Took The Cookie? Simple Origami Craft

Who Took The Cookie? Origami craft for kids

Our friend Caroline of Paper Cat English recently shared this origami craft to go with the “Who Took The Cookie?” song. Try making these paper cookies with your students or kids. When they are finished, have a picnic, sing the song, and find out who took the cookie!

Supplies for making origami cookies. Square paper, glue, embellishments, and scissors (optional).

First, gather all of your supplies. You’ll need square paper, scissors, glue, and embellishments. You could also use crayons or markers to decorate the cookies.


Fold your square paper to make a triangle.

Fold the paper in half to make a triangle.


Fold paper again to make a smaller triangle.

Fold it in half again to make a smaller triangle.


Open the paper. Count how many triangles.

Open it up. How many triangles are there? Let’s count…1,2,3,4.


Fold the corner to the center of the paper.

Now fold all four corners to the middle.


Repeat for all four corners.

Like this.


For a donut, fold the paper in half and cut out a semi-circle.

If you want a donut-like cookie, fold the paper in half and cut out a semicircle. Be sure to supervise kids when they are cutting. If you want a round cookie, skip this step.


Turn paper over and fold in a bit of each corner.

It’s almost finished, fold the four corners in a little.


Turn the paper back over and decorate your cookie!

Turn it over and use sequins, markers, stickers, or crayons to decorate your cookies. What flavor is it? This one is orange and cinnamon…yummy!


Put the cookies onto plates.

Make lots of cookies and put them on plates.


Invite your friends to a picnic.

Have a picnic with your friends, and play a game of “Who Took The Cookie?”


Who took the cookie? Look, it was Mr. Wolf!

Can you see who took the cookie? It was hungry Mr. Wolf!
