|This is Jessica's cool penguin encounter.|
Jasmine and I built a nativity.
We had envisioned a much more elaborate stable, but it kept collapsing!
The other kids' projects collapsed before pictures.
So we decided to try again and built a graham cracker village the last two days.We found the easiest way to cut graham crackers is by "sawing" them with a steak knife.
You needed two end pieces and two side pieces for each house.
And you need two half squares for the roof.
You can cut the end pieces shorter and use 1/4 a cracker for the sides to make a smaller house.
The people are as big as the houses. The snow is coconut flakes.
The trees are made from ice cream sugar cones frosted and turned upside down. The snowbanks are peppermint circus peanut candy (it's usually orange, but the Christmas ones are white) covered in coconut flakes.
