Gingerbread Parthenon

Today we completed one of our favourite history activities - making a gingerbread Parthenon!

My youngest helped me make the gingerbread mixture in the morning:

A happy cook.

We made two models - one made by the younger two working together, and one by the older two:

Parthenon pieces.

The front was made from a template from The Story of the World activity book, and we drew rough outlines for the sides and roof.

The younger children's model.

We stuck it together with icing, and then the children decorated it.

The older children's model.

We have visited the Parthenon marbles at the British Museum many times, so the older two had fun trying to craft centaurs from Jelly Babies and Star Mix sweets to adorn their temple model.

Spot the centaur!
