I randomly bought a packet of 4 gingerbread boys at HEB today. $2.45 - SOLD!
I knew I wanted to decorate them with my boys this year and this was the easiest (and cleanest) way to get this done! I am all about making messy memories - but a nasty sickness is going around our house. I just needed something easy!
And this was lil packet was perfect!
This packet came with 4 gingerbread cookies! One for each boy (I have 3 boys, if you haven't figured that out by now) and one for ME, right?
No thanks! I'm not a big fan of gingerbread, so THIS is the idea that came about and I hope that you can join in on the fun!
The final #4 Gingerbread Man will be apart of my kids lives for 1 week. (Similar concept to the Flat Stanley idea)
They will decorate that #4 Gingerbread Man together and we will place him in a ziplock baggie.
Wherever they go, that Gingerbread Man will go!
And we are going to document it all with Iphone pics, drawn pictures and journal entries.
I can not wait to see what he "looks" like after a week with us! Park play, bike rides, walks to the library and so much more!
I created this cute printable, just for you, to help you get started! Have fun, learn lots and make memories along the way.

Happy Learning - there's LOTS to learn with you are little.
