Gingerbread books are so much fun and the possibilities with them are endless. When I was teaching we spent a week doing gingerbread activities. One of my favorite parts of this week was comparing all of the different gingerbread books. There are SO many different variations and kids love comparing and contrasting them all. They get so excited discussing the different story lines. Are you looking for more Christmas ideas, activities, and printables to do at home or in the classroom? If so click here.
