Ok, I know this is coming to you so late in the season. I remember doing this lesson in the third grade with my teacher. I do this every year. You need to collect milk cartons and wash them out. Buy vanilla icing (I suggest that you add some powdered sugar to the icing to give it a more sticky texture). Get gram crackers and tiny fun toppings such as: chocolate chips, gummy bears…Next let the kids get creative. A great language arts connection, read: Gingerbread Man, Gingerbread Girl and The Cajun Gingerbread Boy. Please give this one a try next year! I promise you will love it!
