Birthday Cake Mystery Set

This is just a simple dog toy set that I thought would make a good introduction to a birthday party-themed storytime. I would simply talk about the items with the kids instead of making up a rhyme or song to go with them. So for example, pull out the hat first and say "Oh, a hat. What might you celebrate wearing a hat like this," etc.
