Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Draw a large gingerbread man shape on your piece of cardboard. Cut it out.

  2. Paint the gingerbread man any way you choose.

  3. Glue on wiggle/google eyes, possibly a pom pom for a nose, if you didn't already paint one, and buttons for his shirt, and possibly for his mouth, if you didn't paint one.

  4. Allow the paint and glue to dry and your supersize gingerbread man is ready for action!

Use brown paper grocery bags, or the piece of brown paper you often find rolled up after the gift wrap is gone to make these personal gingerbread people with faces that your child knows. These may be used for tree ornaments, package decorations, or card enclosures for relatives far away. Great teacher gift, too.
