This was a new book for us and the kids really enjoyed it. It's a cute little story about gingerbread baby going out into the world to look for friends. Only to be chased back home to find that the little boy who keeps him had built him a gingerbread village with lots of friends.
For our art project we made a gingerbread village too. Our gingerbread village was a no bake, super easy project. Which works for us since making gluten free gingerbread can be tricky.
First I gathered up some small milk cartons and small cardboard boxes. I glued them onto a flat sheet of cardboard.
Then, once I made sure there was so stray glue or loose pieces of cardboard, we iced the whole thing in white icing. Being really generous with it since the icing is what the candy would stick too.
Once that was done the kids just went to town decorating.
The only difficulty was keeping them from eating all the candy they had just put on.
Until next time.....
