Parents, We Need Your Help

Greetings Wonderful Parents,

We wanted to ask for your help with some of the upcoming
activities we are planning.
On Wednesday November 30th, we will be decorating gingerbread
We are asking if a few parents could purchase the gingerbread
dough supplies, and create the dough patties for us to use.
1 batch makes about 10-12 ornaments depending on the size of your
cookie cutters. (We are making patties.) Therefore we are asking
for 4 batches to be made. One batch from 4 different volunteers.
Gingerbread Recipe
1 cup dry ground cinnamon
1 Tablespoon dry ground cloves
1 Tablespoon dry ground nutmeg (can omit if you don't have)
3/4 cup applesauce
2 Tablespoons elmers glue (any white glue, we have this at school
so please don’t buy any.)
Mix applesauce and elmers, then add dry ingredients.
Work in dough ball, roll out, sprinkle surface with a little cinnamon
to keep from sticking.
If original batch is too wet, add more dry cinnamon.
Can you make (gingerbread patties) maybe layer each patty on a
separate piece of wax paper - so that each child can then use the
cookie cutter?
If you are able to help us out please send us a note in your child’s
agenda or call the school.
Thanks so much!
Mrs. Wideen and Mrs. Belanger
