The Boy had Fairytale Day at school yesterday. He went as Prince Charming.
All the grade 1's got together and had a parade first. The evil queen from Snow White introduced and interviewed each of the characters ... she was very entertaining.
They had various fairytale themed activities throughout the day. The Boy's first was making gingerbread and gingerbread houses. I volunteered to help. I hadn't creamed butter and sugar by hand since high school home economics class. My arm was feeling a bit sore by the end ... but I was in good company ... the dad who was helping also admitted to a sore arm as well. Each child got a small bit of dough to knead, cut and decorate.
While the other half of the class made their gingerbread, The Boy made a paper gingerbread house.
