We baked and decorated gingerbread boys and girls. Julia has been listening to gingerbread man stories and doing gingerbread man activities at school so she really wanted to make some gingerbread cookies. Gingerbread dough needs to be refrigerated for three hours so we made the dough as soon as Julia came home from school and the cookies were ready to decorate after the girls took their bath.Lauren did a great job with the eyes and buttons.

After School Fun
Julia started kindergarten this week so I want to plan fun and creative after-school experiences for her. This week in addition to a trip to the pool and the spray park the girls did the following activities.
One night I set out the watercolor paint sets. Watercolors are easy to set up and clean up so they make a great spur of the moment art experience.
