I survived my class party today…YAY! It was really fun…I loved all of our activities! We had four stations~

Gingerbread Playdough {I asked a mom to make this - she made a few batches and divided it into 17 balls and put one ball into a baggie – I set out some cookie cutters and let them have at it!}

Gingerbread Sticker Houses  {from Oriental Trading – a GREAT, FANTASTIC, CUTE party craft with NO GLUE…do you hear me???…NO GLUE! So fab! Only $5.00 for a dozen! Cheap and cute…LOVE!

Cookie Decorating {An oldie but goodie…decorating sugar cookies with icing and sprinkles! We also let the kiddos have their snack and drink at this station.}

Book Exchange Station {I had a sweet mom read The Gingerbread Baby (any gingerbread book will do) and every time she read the word gingerbread, the kiddos passed their book to the next person in the circle. Whatever book they had when the story was over was theirs to keep! They loved this!}

I hope all your partays are perfect! :)

Don’t forget…everything in my TpT store is 20% off until Thursday, December 15…click HERE to check it out!

After I initially commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now
on whenever a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the exact same comment.
There has to be a way you are able to remove me from that
service? Kudos!
