Our Gingerbread Party

We held our gingerbread party the last day of school before break.  I am finally getting the pictures up.  Here are some of the activities that we did:

We did scratch off gingerbread men from Oriental Trading company.  They could scratch off the outer brown color and underneath there is a variety of color to show through.  This was a popular and easy craft and there are a variety of this type of craft on Oriental Trading.  I will definitely do these again.

I think having treats was the most popular station this year!

Stringing gingerbread beads was tough.  I didn't realize when I bought these how small the hole's would be.  The grandma who ran this station was a trooper!  Kudos to her!

We decorated cookies.  Thanks to the fabulous mom that baked them for us!Hide all

We also had a cute gingerbread ornament craft that I bought from Oriental Trading.  You could put a picture in the belly.  I guess I did not get a picture :(
