We had our extra fun thing and decorated gingerbread man cookies for it. To get to go to the extra fun thing, the kids have to have all of their work done for the week and have good behavior throughout the week. The kids were so excited to decorate the cookies (unlike me!) LOL! You have to understand that first of all, I am not a baker and second I'm not good with art or decorating things. Luckily, my co-teacher was nice to bake the cookies for us (I did offer to go to the grocery store and try to find some already baked).
During our lunch time, my co-teacher explained how to use the frosting and everything to have them decorate the cookie so it would be easy for them and me. Can you tell that she was concerned about how I was going to handle this extra fun thing??? LOL!
I was nervous for the moment and then the time came. The kids had a great time decorating and they were very creative in the way they decorated their gingerbread cookies. As for me, I survived it, but ended up with frosting in my hair and on my slacks (how does that happen?). The good thing about it was the kids had fun with it and they got to enjoy their cookie at the end of it all.
We have a busy week ahead with 4 more days until our Christmas break starts. How many more days for you?
Have a great week!
