There is something about gingerbread men that just makes my heart smile.
I absolutely love those cute little guys!
Any opportunity to use them in this month’s theme I am totally taking advantage of.
Today, we will be decorating them while working on our focus numbers of the month.
Lil’ Explorers are working on numbers 1-4.
Lil’ Creators are working on numbers 11-14.
However, there is only one template for this activity and it includes numbers 0-20 because your focus numbers for the month may be different than ours depending on when you started.
