I've been reading this story and doing activities with my oldest since he was 2 so now he expects to do it around Christmas time. Good thing I think it is fun. You can see my post of what we did last year here.
Read “Gingerbread Baby” by Jan Brett
Sequence events that happen in the story (felt board pieces)
Sing “Ten Little Gingerbread Babies”
Go on a hunt for missing Gingerbread Baby
Make gingerbread house (I can never decide if it is better to do a graham cracker house or an actual gingerbread house. The gingerbread house won this year.)Make gingerbread ornaments and decorate (1 ½ cups of cinnamon, 1 cup of applesauce, 1/3 cup of glue Mix ingredients together then roll it out and cut out shapes. It takes up to 24 hours to dry)
Gingerbread count matching game
