The elementary children at school were broken up into 4 groups today, to decorate gingerbread houses for the teachers. I just want to show you how cute mine is.
Mine was decorated by a 9 year old boy and a 10 year old girl.
The royal icing was a bit runny and hard to work with, but they did a fantastic job.
We also have very creative and kind parents and grandparents at the school. One of the grandmothers, who also volunteers in the classroom, made these candy bar snow men for all 16 of the elementary students. They are made by wrapping a Hershey bar with butcher's paper and then gluing on the hat, scarf, and face. She said that she found the snowman parts as a kit for making a foam photo frame, that was marked down at Joann Fabrics.
Tomorrow should be fun. The children have all been invited to the lead-teacher/principal's house for a Christmas party, which will include a Secret Santa gift exchange, baking cookies, and watching the original cartoon version of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.
