This month we decided to go with a gingerbread theme, and I was a bit worried my 5th grade boys were going to moan and complain. Well, I was very wrong. They were as excited as my girls to wear their shirts and have their picture taken--they are too cute.
Can you believe it is all fabric paint? They look very shimmery and colorful.
The pencils are made from tan felt, some pillow stuffing, and fabric paint. We were so into the gingerbread theme we decided to make their yearly Christmas frame of little gingerbread (about 6in. tall). The frames are made from felt, wiggly eyes, and more fabric paint. Their faces will be in the tummy section.
We also made them stockings in the shape of Gingerbread girl and boy. They look so adorable. My kiddos say that they hang all the past stockings around their home for Christmas...aaahhh.
I know we went Gingerbread CRAZY, but my kiddos loved it and therefore I loved it. Next week we are going to be eating gingerbread cookies (I love the ones carried by Trader Joe's) with hot chocolate on Pajama Day. I just can't wait!
