Materials Used

This craft is open ended and you can use any materials you’d like. This is what we used.

  • Brown Construction Paper
  • Pink Construction Paper
  • Gems and Other Decorations
  • Googly Eyes
  • Glue
  • Scissors

I started by cutting out a gingerbread person shape from a large piece of brown construction paper. If your child can use scissors, you can just draw the shape and let them do the cutting! After that was cut out, I cut various shapes and patterns out of the pink paper.

Next, I helped my daughter put glue on the gingerbread shape and then let her glue things on where she wanted them.

This craft can be done in any way your child wants. We kept ours simple, but you could give it clothing or even hair!

Book Suggestions

Little ones often learn best when books are paired with a craft or activity! Here are some suggestions for this craft.
