Montessori & Gingerbread

One way to have fun during this holiday is to use to use a gingerbread theme.

Here are some gingerbread ideas that would be great at home and school. 

Montessori handwork comes to light during this holiday season.  Also, baking and cooking introduce not only elements of culture, taste and smell, but the science of cooking.

Here are some activities that will keep any child's attention using gingerbread fun. 

For a community service you can provide these hand made gingerbread dolls.

Make an easy gingerbread house. I use melted white chocolate to make a strong bonding mortar for the house.

When I make gingerbread with children, I like using egg free recipes, kids love to lick the batter so this

is much safer than using eggs.

Use this gingerbread printout to make as a pattern for tracing, sewing or a cookie template, cut out of craft foam to make a decoration.
