Print out the PDF on white paper or cardstock then laminate the pages so the playdough won’t stick. Cut it out so it’s ready to use with your play dough mat.
Make a batch of fresh play dough or buy some at the Dollar Store and let kids create their own gingerbread man! Add a bow tie, hair bow, candy buttons, or even cute Christmas outfits. The ideas are endless!
Christmas Gingerbread Theme Printable Coloring Sheets
This is a great printout for the younger and older kids. Just print out the outline and let them get creative with glitter, crayons, or even watercolor paints.
It’s also great for using along with an educational homeschool lesson about Christmas, gingerbread men, and baking.
Counting with Gingerbread Men
For this activity, print the templates on brown cardstock or printer paper and use a Sharpie to write numbers on them. Write the number in both numerical and word form for younger kids who are learning to recognize numbers and older kids who are learning to read.
Provide candies like peppermints, pom poms, or Christmas-themed buttons for the kids to use to match the number on the gingerbread man.
Christmas “Cookie” Exchange
This can be used as a fun activity for a holiday party, Sunday school class, or even a family night! Print out the templates on cardstock and cut them out. You’ll want to use the medium or small gingerbread man templates so the kids can decorate several different cookies to exchange.
Let each child decorate their gingerbread man with whatever festive cutouts they want, enough for each class member.
After everyone is finished let the kids exchange their gingerbread men “cookies” with the other members of the class similar to a Valentine’s Day party. When they’re done they’ll have lots of unique cookies that represent their friends! They can take them home, or you can use them for teaching activities.
