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 grocery store and bought a few packages of Original, Golden, and Double Stuf OREO cookies! As far as I'm concerned, Double Stuff are the ONLY ones worth buying, but we had to have two different colors for Checkers.
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 Oreo Super Dunk! My kids loved dunking their opponent's pieces into their milk and eating them!
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!
