The snow continued to fall through the night, and the kids woke up anxious to play outside, this morning.
The younger girls had to wait for their hair to dry, before they could go out. So, I distracted them with a few of our favorite Gingerbread Man stories.
(Carol Jones includes a recipe for gingerbread men, at the back of the book, too)
Then, I gave them a couple of gingerbread men puppets, to decorate. I made them, by cutting the gingerbread men shapes, with elongated legs, out of an empty cereal box.
We stapled small loops of paper, to the back of each leg, just big enough for the girls to stick their fingers through.
Then, we creased the legs, to make them bend better.
And, their gingerbread men were ready to run, run...
...as fast as they could...
...until one came to the river, where helpful fox, offered him a ride across.

It's great to be a homeschooler.
