We played two of the games in the Teaching Heart Polar Express Games Packet - Click here to learn more about these games! For Winter LEARNING fun in the classroom click here!

I used the recipe to make the little Gingerbread Man below with Preschool Kiddos.  We painted the arms and legs with the paint.  We used a small round brown plate for the body (but you could paint a plain paper plate).  We used contruction...
