Delicious Gingerbread Characters

Mrs. Lisicki’s class spent a couple of weeks reading a variety of gingerbread stories, comparing and contrasting each plot, setting, and list of characters.  As a culminating activity, the students decorated their own gingerbread cookie.  They created gingerbread girls, superheroes, ninjas, Rapunzel, football players, and even one gingerbread Grinch!  The children commented that they were concerned that their cookies may come to life, and start running around the school, with students and staff chasing behind.  The best part, hands down, was eating the sugary creations once they were finished.
