Making gingerbread houses. Brown lunch bags stuffed with newspaper, scalloped scrapbook paper and foam stickers (bucket for $3.60 at Michaels!). We are making a gingerbread village in the hallway.
This little guy is quite proud of his gingerbread house!
This guy is very proud to be a chef! The gingerbread man spatula is from Hobby Lobby. It was $2 (originally $3.99, 50% off). It was so cute, I had to go back for another one!
Making boats to help the gingerbread man safely cross the river. Items available: plastic cups, plastic cafeteria containers, poster board, straws, toothpicks, clay, glue, scissors and tape. Each student got a marshmallow gingerbread man to "rescue" and get safely across the river.
Testing out the gingerbread man's boat. It floats! This is a great problem solving activity for students!
What are you doing to celebrate the winter holidays? I'd love some party ideas for next week!
