Gingerbread Pirates

For the last several years we have participated in a fundraiser for our local Boys & Girls Club. It's so much fun because we can design, build and decorate our own gingerbread connection.

Last year we designed a playground with our grade 4 buddy class.
This year we were inspired by a book The Gingerbread Pirates by Kristin Kladstrup. Also last Christmas my daughter gave me pirate cookie cutters so we were set.

This year we have grade 3 buddies and they brainstormed and drew out their ideas and then we started baking. They were very creative when deicing how to make the cannon and trees.

Our StrongStart little ones made and decorated the gingerbread men with their buddies and then we put it all together.It will be on display for the next two weeks so visitors can vote on their favourite and silent bid to win.
