Our wonderful PTA sponsors a school wide silent auction to raise funds. Teachers, staff, etc donate their time in the form of an activity, movie, lunch, etc. Families bid on these posted activities for their children and the highest bidders win. In art, we sponsored one of my favorite holiday rituals.........making gingerbread houses!!! This year I kept it simple, and the students made gingerbread houses using graham crackers and recycled milk cartons. This was not only a holiday activity but a recycle art project as well. I had FUN and I hope the 11 little sweet girls had fun, too!!!
