We read the story of The Gingerbread Man as well as Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett. We discussed the differences and similarities between the two stories.
We made gingerbread houses from milk cartons and gingerbread fun foam men. I was worried about the wee ones picking off the eyes and buttons and them becoming a choking hazard so they drew on their gingerbread men. We used the fun foam men in the retelling of the story.
The highlight of the week was definitely baking gingerbread cookies.
