OREO and childhood memories go hand in hand for me! I have always loved OREO cookies and love sharing them with my children as well! When I heard about the #OREOSuperDunk Challenge, I knew I had to come up with a fun way to show my kids how to dunk their OREO!
What Is Cookie Checkers Anyway?!
I hopped in the car, headed to my local Cub Foods and bought a few packages of Original, Golden and Double Stuf OREO cookies!
I knew I wanted to come up with a game that my kids could both play and that they would both love! I thought what could be better than Cookie Checkers! It is a game that my 5 and 10-year-old can both play, together, and both have fun dunking their opponent!
Print your own Cookie Checkers board:
I came up with a small, printable Cookie Checker board and a set of instructions, which you can download here:
Once, I printed out the board, I set up the game for my kids, complete with 2 glasses of ice-cold milk!
I made the board smaller than a usual checker board, because I wanted to make sure my kids didn’t eat too many delicious OREO cookies, seeing that a serving size is 3 cookies or 2 Double Stuf Cookies!
My kids started playing and, since they are competitive by nature, they were having a blast!
It was bound to happen! The jump and the #OREOSuperDunk! My kids loved dunking their opponent’s pieces into their milk and eating it!
I have to say, OREO Cookie Checkers was a complete success and my kids have already asked me when they can play again! I told them we may be able to do it for snack-time or for a treat, after dinner, if they are part of the “clean plate club”! Say it with me parents, INCENTIVE. Gotta love a game with multiple purposes!
