You get a little bit of everything in this 140 page pack! Enjoy 20 gingerbread themed activities and centers. Even though this is a gingerbread pack, it has no other 'Christmas-y' things included (Santa, presents, trees, reindeer, elves etc) so may be appropriate if you are not allowed Christmas themed activities.
