Run, run as fast as you can, to make our foam Gingerbread Man craft!  This craft is a great Christmas craft.  Our version pictured below is a very traditional gingerbread man, but encourage your children to dress and decorate their gingerbread person (man or woman) however they would like.  Add a dress and shoes, a hat or jacket or even some yarn hair!  Use our template to cut out the basic shapes of the project.  This is also a great project for a toddler or preschooler to do.  We are starting to practice making patterns with our daughter and the buttons on the gingerbread man were a fun way to teach this concept.  Hang up your gingerbread man (or your whole gingerbread family) when you are finished for a great Christmas decoration!

What you'll need:

How to make your Foam Gingerbread Man Craft
  • Trace our gingerbread man template onto a piece of brown craft foam and cut it out.
  • Cut some squiggly white strips for the icing along the gingerbread man's arms and legs and glue them into place.
  • Cut a bow out of red craft foam and glue into place. 
  • Cut a "smile" out of red craft foam and glue into place.
  • Glue two googly eyes onto the gingerbread man's face.
  • Glue the buttons onto your gingerbread man.
