We ate Gingerbread Waffles, eggs, bacon & sausage, and fruit & yogurt salad.
We made a graham cracker Gingerbread house (adobe of course because we're in the southwest)! I set out an egg carton with various fillings in each section. We used marshmallows (became luminarias & snowmen), sprinkles of various sizes & colors, chocolate chips (walkway & roof tiles), pomegranate seeds (doorknobs & windows), shredded coconut(snow) and walnuts (wood pile).
|R worked his fine motor skills by trying to eat the dropped sprinkles.|
I traced a gingerbread man using a cookie cutter onto a paper plate and then cut it out. We used this as a stencil to paint gingerbread men on plain white paper. I think I'll cut them out and use them as tags or cards to family members.
The Gingerbread Cowboy and The Gingerbread Boy. We also watched a few "books" on YouTube.

Another great family night!
