Gingerbread Puppets - (Kindergarten)
I read the Gingerbread Baby, by Jan Brett to the class. We frosted our gingerbread with yummy vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate colors. On the back we glued half an envelope to be a hand pocket. Finally the students colored a gingerbread house color sheet. We acted out a short version of the story. The Gingerbread Baby ran from the cat, the dog, the pig, and the fox. Then the Gingerbread Baby ran to a gingerbread house and there the baby was safe.
We glued the pocket (envelope) on the back. Just slip your hand in and play out the story. I tell the students when they wear their gingerbread puppet at home run from their mom, dad, brother, or sister because they might catch you and take a bite! I have been told of some fun chase times by kindergartners.
