We thought it would be fun to make our own Gingerbread Man for snack today! We worked together to mix and shape our cookie snack, and then we took him to the kitchen and asked our cooks to bake him for us. We saw him baking when we went to lunch.
During rest time, though, the cooks came running in, apologizing and worried, because our Gingerbread Man had run away! They heard him say something like, "Run, run, as fast as you can. You can't catch me. I'm the Gingerbread Man" as he ran out the back door. They tried to catch him, but they couldn't.
The kids looked desperately during recess, but we had no luck finding him outside. If you see him as you are out and about this weekend, or if any of your family and friends see him, will you please let us know? You could send us a quick note at: Mrs. Ehrhart's Kindergartners, Woodfield Elementary, 905 Barnes Dr., Waterford, WI 53185. Thanks for your help. Below are some pictures so you know what he looked like. Click "Play" to see all of them.
