We read Sweet Dream Pie by Audrey Wood & Mark Teague. It was a pie fill with lots of sugary candies and then what happens while the pie is made and after everyone eats the pie. Sadly it looks like to book is out of print, but you can get it from your local library.

What you need: playdough in many colors, pie tin or small bowls, rolling pins, and dull butter knife for cutting playdough.

The girls rolled out their pie shells and put them in the pie tin.
