Here’s a quick, easy and fun craftivity
that can be done in school, or completed at home.
Students color their gingerbread house, then cut it down the middle and glue the ends, which act like hinges, to a sheet of construction paper.
When you flip the house open, it reveals a completed writing prompt
Students write what it’s like to be a gingerbread cookie, or what it’s like to live in a gingerbread house.
is to send the worksheet note home, for the entire family to take part in.
They glue a family photo to the square and everyone signs their name. The caption reads: “Merry Christmas from our house to yours.”
For that finishing touch, have them write the number portion of their address
on the gingerbread house
Completed projects make a sweet bulletin board
, as little ones especially enjoy seeing a family photo while they're at school.
You could also opt to have the photo inside
, or have children draw a picture of their family
, and the writing prompt on the back
, then suspend from the ceiling.
