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
Draw a large gingerbread man shape on your piece of cardboard. Cut it out.
Paint the gingerbread man any way you choose.
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.
Allow the paint and glue to dry and your supersize gingerbread man is ready for action!
