Child holding a paper gingerbreadman.Have fun creating a giant gingerbread man to play with or use for decoration. This is my grandson with the one we created.

Approximate Time: 45 minutes




  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.

Here is an inexpensive/free way you can decorate your home for the holidays. You can cut out gingerbread people from cardboard, shipping boxes or craft paper then decorate!


Hang the gingerbread people individually with tape or as a garland.
