Gingerbread Man Craft

                                                                                                                                                                                                                 I was thinking about what sort of craft I wanted to do with my kids, and then it hit me…why not the GINGERBREAD Man {or Girl}?!  There is SO much you can do and so many great versions of the story out there, you’ll not be wanting for stuff to do!

  1. I would love love to win this pack!! My first graders would absolutely adore it! I've been trying to find a cute/educational/fun project to do with them before the holiday break and this would be absolutely perfect. It would be an honor if you shared it with me! is my email. Thanks!

  2. Our principal has shortened our celebration time and moved it to the hour of the day on our last day before break. This set would let us party a bit EACH day during the last week before break. I would love to win it as we are doing one or two gingerbread books every day next week.

  3. Love your blog and all of your wonderful ideas! Thanks for sharing. Would love to win your pack as next week we are studying all of the wonderful gingerbread books. You're pack would be a much welcome early Christmas gift!
