Gingerbread Jamboree

Today we had a gingerbread class at Conner Prairie. After preschool pick up we headed there for some holiday fun. We got there early and had time to look at all of the gingerbread house and do some of the fun activities. The boys had fun decorating a house with Lincoln logs and jewels and smelling different spices. Parker would say "yucky" after smelling each one.
The houses were amazing and there were so many neat ones this year. It was hard to keep the boys from touching because they were all so wonderful. I loved them all.

Then it was time for the Gingerbread Jamboree. The boys read the story The Gingerbread man and did a poem with Miss Mary. They also sang and danced. For craft they decorated a graham crackers house with icing and candy. It was hard to keep them from eating the candy. Parker kept saying "one more". He was a fan of the Skittles.

We went on a hunt for the Gingerbread Man and then found him back in the classroom. He sang and danced with the kids.

Parker wasn't too sure but ended up giving him a hug and a high five.
