Gingerbread is one of my favorite themes. There is so much you can do to teach a unit on gingerbread and the kiddos absolutely love it! Here's a gingerbread girl we made...tutu and all!
First, we painted the gingerbread girl with brown paint, then we glued google eyes, a pom pom nose, and a pipe cleaner mouth on her. We glued rhinestones onto the hat, peppermint candies as buttons, and made a tulle tutu. I think she looks great! :)
