Our first activity with the gingerbread cookies was to place one in a bowl of water and make predictions about what would happen. Our predictions:
- He will break.
- He will sink.
- He will melt.
- The cookie won;t be yummy anymore.
- His sprinkles will come off in the water.
It's a good thing that this took a little time, because I'm not sure any of us would want to eat them after seeing them in the water. We decorated them and ate them for snack. Surprisingly, you can fit quite a few decorations on these little guys! They were pretty and very yummy!!!
I made a batch of gingerbread scented playdough for the friends to use. They've been making Gingerbread men and women all week!
You can even make scented bracelets and rings!
