Today we made gingerbread men: we cut up the butter, then melted it with sugar and treacle.
We mixed in the other ingredients - it was quite hard to mix up!
Then we used the cutter to make our figures, and added eyes and buttons:
It smelled delicious!
It also inspired us to play the story of the Gingerbread Man outside - Debbie tried to catch us all and we ran away!!
We started off playing catch with a ball outside; then we graduated to bats and balls....until they all went over the fence!
One of the children found the hula hoops and we practiced rolling them and spinning them; this led to trying to make them come back to us and playing hoopla!
Our circus skills were certainly put to the test :)
