As a means of introducing first-day kindergardeners to their schools, some teachers play the gingerbread game. They tell the students that there was a tray of gingerbread men for the class, but that the little guys got up and ran away. The teacher takes the class around the school to look for the gingerbread men, and during the hunt they meet the other teachers, school nurse, cafeteria workers, etc. Finally, they wind up in the Principal's office, where the gingerbread men are found in a cabinet and distributed to the class. When this happened in one local school, one little boy cautioned his classmates: "Don't eat the feet...they've been on the floor!"
