Gingerbread man craft ideas

You can use these gingerbread people for so many crafts and decorations! Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- Have your child cut out the gingerbread man outlines with blunt tipped scissors for fine motor practice. We use these small scissors.
- Cut and color the small gingerbread people then use them as ornaments, gift tags, or for garland.
- Use the gingerbread man templates as stencils. Cut out the shape, trace it onto a piece of plastic with a marker, and cut the shape out of the plastic to make a reusable stencil for painting! (An empty plastic box from salad or leftovers works perfectly for this project.)
- Print the small gingerbread men onto shrink film, color, and make jewelry, bag charms, or keychains.
- Grab a plastic box, tape, and paint and let your child to a golfball process art with gingerbread men.
- Use the gingerbread man templates to make a gingerbread man garland.
- Make sun catchers for your windows.
