Activities for Chocolate and books to read
These poems were inspired by CJ Heck's poem "My World"
In my dream,
stars were glowing in the sky.
Marshmallows fell like
The sun rose and it was a beautiful day.
Cotton candy were the clouds.
I walk on and I saw
graham cracker stepping stones.
Lifesaver flowers rose from the ground.
Long pretzels stood tall.
I started to eat.
I heard a sound.
It sounded like my mom.
I woke up, and said,
"I don't want to get up. I'm still eating!"
Once I walked through Candy Land and
all the stars were Starbursts, that I could touch.
The rain was gum and gooey.
It snowed Hershey Kisses. That was great!
The worms were gummy worms and
All the bears tummies were Crunch bars.
Logs were red licorice sticks.
I saw a lake all made of ice cream.
But, I fell into it.
The leaves were little marshmallows falling in my basket.
Candy Canes were the Candy land Flag.
Lemon drops were yellow grass.
All the fish were goldfish crackers.
I didn't know about the Skittle bugs.
Malt balls were little deer running.
But, when I woke up
It was all just a dream.
In my dream Crunch Bars
Lollipops were the flowers
And M&M's were ants.
I walked to the pretzel trees.
It started to snow marshmallows.
I looked into the sky and saw a starburst
star and ice cream clouds.
Leaves were chocolate chips
And a licorice bird's nest was empty.
Then my mom woke me up for school.
My Candy Land
In my dream,
all the ice cubes were big chunks
of chocolate chips.
The stars were yellow starbursts.
I came to a forest with a peppermint
And pretzel trees,
with green icing for the leaves.
I then came to a meadow of sugar canes.
Than a Jell-o wolf jumped out!
He didn't bite me.
If he did it wouldn't hurt.
Then a little, blue, lollipop bird
came to ME!
He told me to look up to the sky.
I did and saw marshmallow clouds.
The two lollipop birds took me
up to the blue, Laffy-Taffy sky,
and sat me on one of the marshmallow clouds.
Then I heard a scream!
It was my brother waking me up for
My Candy World
In my dream the grass was
made of green Jell-O.
It felt gooey and
The bushes were scoops of ice cream.
The dirt I walked on was
chocolate pudding, so
I ate it!
It was good.
Before I knew it,
it the chocolate pudding was gone.
I woke up.
I said, Mom, what's for breakfast?"
Then I got out of bed.
My Candy World
I was walking through
a forest with silly things.
Marshmallows were frogs
That hopped all around the
Juice was the flowing streams.
That is the best to swim in.
Kit-Kat bar trees
grew Swedish fish,
that were all different kinds of colors,
except white and black.
Candy burgers were the butterflies.
That was very tasty.
Gingerbread men were the bushes,
That were mostly brown.
I'd rather go get a tummy ache
Then to stop eating!
In my dream, all roses were candy
hearts that I could give to my Valentine.
Bubble gum became paths that I could
Lollipop Po-Go sticks that I could hop on,
M&M balls that I could bounce,
Hershey Kisses as icicles in the winter,
marshmallow stepping stones
that I stepped on
And ice cream colors mixed up
to make a sunset in the sky.
But, when I touched the heart-shaped rose ~it vanished!
When I walked down the bubble gum path,
it exploded with a net!
Candy bottle cap bugs came out of nowhere.
They began to spin a cotton candy web.
I touched everything.
It all vanished!
I heard a bark! It was my dog, Louie.
I jumped up and said, Louie, please be quiet."
In my dream lollipops were as big as trees
that had star burst leaves.
Kit - Kat bar sidewalks,
And Hershey Kiss hats, that I wore to school.
When it rained skittles fell from the sky.
In winter marshmallows were snow,
Cotton candy floated through the sky.
Chocolate cakes were the Rocky Mountains
Goldfish crackers were nearby in a chocolate lake.
Gummy worms were slithering by with all different colors.
The moon was yellow gum,
Popcorn was my dress,
Red licorice sticks for pencils
All the school walls were made of graham crackers.
I went through a forest
When I heard
My brother call me.
I woke up, and my brother was on top of me
Trying to wake me up.
I don't want to wake up!
In my dream,
I saw whipped cream clouds
With a black licorice sky.
Soon marshmallows fell like snow
Dropping onto my nose.
I went sleigh riding on a Kit-Kat bar
With a gum drop handle.
Later I built a marshmallow snowman.
It had three balls,
Brown M&M's for his mouth,
A sweet potato nose,
And some green skittle eyes.
Then my friend called me on the telephone.
Mom woke me up
she wanted me to play in the snow.
It really did snow.
In Candy Land there were lollipop trees,
That had marshmallow leaves.
The rain was sprinkles that fell
on my tongue
And if they hit the ground
they sprinkled chocolate cake.
Oceans were root beer floats,
And there were lots of boats
made out of gummy worms.
There were bushes with M&M's
Berries that tasted really good.
Sunflowers with lemon starburst
Petals and tall pretzel stick
If I could go to Candy Land
I would bring all my friends
And eat until I get sick!
In my dream, Kit-Kat bars were
Canoes floating on the lake.
A chocolate cookie was a Frisbee for my dog.
Malts were falling everywhere
from a cliff high above.
Graham cracker flags waved in
Hershey Kiss tornados rumbling below.
Oreos were comets hitting
the jaw breaker earth --
Crumble, crumble, crash!!!
While lollipops became
my car lights, so I could see
Candy canes became fishing poles.
Lemon drops fell like rain on me--
Mmmmm, so good!
Peppermints were golden
treasures that I had to find.
I went to reach for the gold
and I fell off of my bed.
My dream disappeared
and my mom was calling me.
My Candy World
In my dream the rain was
chocolate and the trees were
In the forest there was a big swamp.
Peppermint Patty's were stones going across
the swamp. Lollipops were umbrellas.
Maybe in the next century the world
will be this way.
Even though, I still like the world the
way it is now.
My dog woke me up!
I just couldn't eat my food after looking
at all that candy!
In my dream the snow was marshmallows,
the lakes made out of lemon drops.
The trees were made out of tall pretzels,
and candy canes hung from its branches.
I saw a forest up ahead with a path
made out of twizzlers.
I followed the path.
It lead to peppermint patties falling
from the sky.
I caught a few
In a bag made out of graham crackers.
I saw far away mountains
made out of ice cream,
on the top there were M&M's
and chocolate syrup dripping
down its sides.
Then Maggie jumped on my
seat and said,
"Wake up! Wake up!"
I had to get off the bus.
But if I had my way,
That would be the day.

In my dream
all the mountains were ice cream.
The trees were pretzel sticks.
A bubble gum path
leads to my Kit-Kat house.
The sun was an orange mento.
The flowers were lollipops.
The moon was a chocolate chip
If the world is like my dream
I would eat all day!
