We have read many Gingerbread stories since we started our Gingerbread theme, and are really enjoying Jan Brett's Gingerbread Friends over and over.
We have also been doing some team building. I planned a couple of co-operative art experiences to further that end. To coincide with our gingerbread theme, I place a large blank cut out of a gingerbread person on each table. The children were allowed to decorate however they wished, as long as they did it together.
I admit --- I was loathing, just a little, the thought the glitter would appear, but to my surprise it never did. Once the kids discovered the large buttons, it was the "cool" thing to decorate with!
We added a few foam stickers.
We even made up a couple of impromptu games with our new Gingerbread Friends.
It's a good thing these are made from art materials and not real gingerbread---they're too cute to eat!
