Gingerbread Boys and Girls

First graders designed thier own gingerbread boys and girls.  I don't normally use patterns, but for this project I've found that having a pattern for the outline of the cookie is helpful because students can concentrate on the creative aspect of the project:  the decorating!  After hearing a story called Gingerbread Mouse, I taught students to draw designs on their "cookie" with oil pastels and then to paint with brown watercolor.  It's a great one-day project.
Do you recognize Luke Skywalker?
