Never Feed a Yeti Spaghetti Printable Activity

Since I try to do books instead of candy for holidays, Archer got the book Never Feed a Yeti Spaghetti for Valentine's Day.  It has cute little rhymes and then these "mouth" openings with felt teeth on each page.  As I was reading it to him, I thought it would be so much fun if he could actually "feed" the animals through the mouths.  Here is what I ended up making.
I made a free printable you can get here with a picture of each food mentioned in the book.  Initially, I was just going to laminate each disk.
After some thought, I decided to put them on wooden disks to make them last longer.  I got 2 inch disks from Hobby Lobby and then used Modge Podge to secure them.  I did have to cut out closer to each picture to have enough room to get them to stick.  I used one coat on the bottom of each picture to "glue" them to the disks, then I did 3-4 coats on top.
Archer is so young, that he just feeds any disk through the mouths.  As he gets older, I'll probably have him pick the food that goes with the rhyme on that page.  (Taking a picture using the disks proved to be a bit difficult.  Usually, I have him on my lap.) 
We found it worked to stand the book up and have him feed the disks through that way.
You could also easily "feed" the disks through the wrong side of the page, you have to for feeding the kale to the whale anyway.

Now I'm on the lookout for other fun book activities to make.  Let me know if you have any ideas!
