Hot Cocoa Storytime Rhymes

I wrote and adapted some lines to go with this hot cocoa dog toy set from Amazon. I'm told you can sometimes find these brand at Marshall's or TJ Maxx, so if you have those stores near you, keep an eye out! You could definitely use a real coffee mug and some giant cotton balls to recreate this if you don't want to buy a prop. I needed something shatter-proof as our storytime props rotate from branch to branch through our system.

Three Marshmallows
By Anne Clark
One marsh, two marsh, three marshmallows,
Drop right into my cocoa.
One sip, two sips, three sips of cocoa
Warm my belly up

Cocoa Pokey
Adapted from: “Hokey Pokey”
You put your marshmallow in,
You take your marshmallow out,
You put your marshmallow in
and you shake it all about,
You do the cocoa pokey,
and you turn yourself around,
And that’s what it’s all about, yum!

I Am Hungry
Tune: Frere Jacques
I am hungry, I am hungry. 
What should I eat? What should I eat? 
Think I'll have some cocoa. Think I'll have some cocoa. 
With lots of heat. With lots of heat. 
Adapted from Storytime Ukulele 


  1. I have seen pet toys like this at Walgreens or Michael's and always wondered if I could use them for storytime! Cute songs, thanks for sharing!
