This is what we have planned for after school today...making gingerbread friends. Wish me luck, we all know I'm not the cookie diva! I'll post pictures of our fun (so long as the cookies somewhat resemble gingerbread people) later tonight.
I had originally planned to read Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett today, but thought that Gingerbread Friends would go along better for making gingerbread cookies. My kids love the last pages of this book the best.
I made baking mixes back in November to make baking in December easier!
I've placed mats, aprons, frosting, and a big cup for milk at each place.
We have plenty of sprinkles for decorating our cookies.
