Then play! I also set out the pretend sprinkles and chocolate chips from our sticky cookie craft. This is a fun one to pair with gingerbread cookie cutters, and play bakeshop. Or read Jan Brett’s Gingerbread Boy and do some storytelling. We combined the two and had a bake shop selling Gingerbread Baby and Gingerbread Boy cookies!
