Gingerbread Man Exchange II

I was hoping to participate in the Gingerbread Man Exchange that was started by packerfan but another Georgia teacher beat me to the punch!

I am wondering if anyone else is interested in starting another exchange... I would be willing to organize everything!

Thanks!

I have participated in one the last two years. Basically, you create a gingerbread man and decorate it with things from your state (i.e., flag, state seal, symbols, industries, sports teams, etc). You make one to mail to each person in the exchange. Last year, I mailed over 30. The kids love making them and they really love getting the gingerbread men. Most classes include a letter telling a bit about themselves and their state. It it a commitment to make all of those little guys! OHIO is in!

Everyone that wants to participate, please send me your information (name, school address, grade level, e-mail address) in a private message. I will put together all of the information and send it out to you as soon as it is complete!

AJ- Thanks for the info! One thing I'd like to clarify- do these get sent throughout the year or around Christmas time?

This will be my first year participating, but I am super excited!

When to send

The two exchanges I participated in had a due date of November 30th for mailing them. The kids received them throughout December. We did receive many LATE ones (even into February). If you can't commit to this project, I would not sign up. It does take a bit of prep time.
Some timesaving tips for me: Copy the gingerbread pattern onto brown construction paper (or whatever color you are using); print small flags, state symbols, etc and have the kids cut them out (I actually printed mine in color to save time; had the kids make the face.

Thanks again so much for putting this together. The kids absolutely loved it. I hung a huge US map in the hall and then attached each gingerbread man to the state it came from. The whole school LOVED it!! I missed the posts last year and didn't get to do it. I can't tell you how many students asked where the gingerbread men were.
