How to from

Ginberbread Man

Gingerbread Man


I love Christmas and there are so many crafts you can do with the kids from toddlers and up like paper gingerbread men!


Difficulty: Easy

Things You'll Need


Step One

cut out a gingerbread man shape with brown construction paper.

Step Two

cut out a larger gingerbread man with red construction paper with scissors that have zig zag or deckle edges.

Step Three

Have the kids glue the brown gingerbread man on top of the red gingerbread man

Step Four

Bring out different craft pieces like googly eyes, stickers, piper cleaners and buttons.

Step Five

You can also cut out eyes or pieces to make a vest and shorts or color with markers.

Step Six

Decorate and get creative! You can add glitter, cut a hole on top and make yarn loop and hang on the tree or window.

Overall Tips & Warnings

  • When doing crafts with toddlers this is a great time to encourage independence and creativity and simple crafts like this gingerbread man give you just that opportunity to let them go on their own.
  • Make sure you are using safety scissors if you allow them to cut any part of the craft.
