We have read several versions of the Gingerbread Man. Below are sequencing, and feltboard pieces to retell the story. Alice was very disturbed by the Gingerbread Man being eaten at the end of the story. We have been coming up with other endings that don't involve the Gingerbread Man getting eaten.

Here are the ornaments we made last night.

Ever wonder what Will is doing while we craft? He makes his own fun...
