Oh what fun we had making real Gingerbread man cookies! First, we pressed our piece of dough so that it was big enough to fit our gingerbread man cookie cutter on it, then we PRESSED the cutter down, and removed the extra dough around it, revealing our gingerbread man shape!
Then we decorated our Gingerbread men and girls with mini m and ms!
Then our cookies were ready for the oven! Don’t worry!Mrs. Schoon stayed in the kitchen to make sure they didn’t try to run away!
Hands on experience is always the BEST experience to have in preschool! Our Bible unit the past few weeks has been about Noah. So in typical PK style we made animal Masks…we all had a partner of course, because the animals came to the ark “two by two”…
Then Mrs. Vowles dressed up as Noah and told the “animals” what God had spoken to “me”…
Then we got on the ark!! Wev talked about what it was like on the ark…hot, crowded, and probably stinky! We “heard” the rain! (Mrs. Vowles played a thunderstorm CD..) When the rain stopped we got off the ark, and there it was! The rainbow! God’s Promise to never flood the earth again! We had a great experience!
In keeping with our Pumpkin unit, Mrs. Vowles brought in a special guest for us to meet: it was the GIANT Mr. Pumpkin! First, we checked him out and noticed he had lines on hom..he wasn’t smooth..
Then we painted our interpretation of him at the easels, ONLY using yellow paint(for pumpkin flowers), brown paint (for the dirt the pumpkins sit on), green paint(for the vine), and orange paint (for Mr. Pumpkin)…it was fun to see that EVERY painting was different even though we all used the same colors and were painting the same Mr. Pumpkin!
Then it was time to cut Mr. Pumpkin open and see what was inside! It didn’t hurt him a bit and we loved checking out his seeds and pulp!
Then we carved a pretty heart into him and watched it glow…just like Jesus’ Love glows in us 🙂
It was so much fun making Dalmatian Pudding during “Dd” week! First we drew a face on our clear cup with a black Sharpie, and cut out the floopy ears and taped them on…then we mixed milk with vanilla instant pudding and stirred it up! Then we added chocolate chips to make his spots! A yummy time was had by all!
