It’s Gingerbread Week!

Check out these kindergarten gingerbread activities and themes, perfect for your students just before the holidays! Math, Literacy, Fine Motor, and Crafts for kids!
I love gingerbread (people either love it or hate it).  But I love it!  I also think it is one of my favorite classroom themes.

Healthy Recipe for Kids

In my house, I stand alone in my love for gingerbread.   My husband and The Perfect Son turn up their noses.   In my quest to have a healthy holiday, I found this recipe!  At under 50 calories a cookie (frosting adds more calories), this might not be too sinful.

These are adorable (non-editable) ornaments that might make a nice parent gift.  They smell sort of amazing!

 I seriously think I would be the kid to eat this Gingerbread Play Dough, but this would make another great fine motor activity.  This would be a fun complement to my Dough Stations.

Speaking of friends… here are a few more ginger-awesome activities.
I think these come from one of the first units I ever bought from Deanna Jump… Her Gingerbread Unit.   She told me she was updating it so it will be even better than ever!  If you grab it now (while it is on sale) you can download the update at no additional charge.
