Everlasting Gingerbread

Submitted by Linda
I know that I've mentioned before how blessed I am to be in kindergarten where parent help is bountiful and families are generous in providing supplies. Here's another neat family who gave a wonderful gift this season to us K teachers and 90+ kindergarten friends!

Featured in the center of this picture is my student Peyton and her mom and dad. Her dad is a ceramics teacher at a nearby high school, so his students prepped the clay, and then he came (on his day off!) and both mom and dad helped all of our K students decorate their gingerbread men!
We've done this type of project before, without wonderful parent helpers like these, and it is a ton of work! So imagine how happy we were when these folks offered to take it on! Here are a few of the men, ready for their trip to the kiln....
These three glazed and fired men are hanging on my tree at home - But don't worry...they'll be back at school on Monday, ready to be bubble-wrapped, tucked in a gift bag, and sent home with kindergartners to their lucky parents!
