The Gingerbread Man

We had fun talking about gingerbread men and gingerbread houses this holiday season. 


We read the gingerbread man book. Then, we made our own running gingerbread men finger puppets. I got the idea from another blogger and liked it so much. 

Here's What You Need:
  • empty cereal boxes
  • crayons
  • hot glue gun
  • scissors
  • gingerbread man cookie cutter
Here's What You Do:
  1. Trace the gingerbread cookie cutter onto the back of a cereal box but make the legs a lot longer and straighter. 
  2. Cut out the gingerbread man.
  3. Cut out two strips about 3/4 inch tall and long enough to fit around your finger.
  4. Hot glue the strips into a rolled tube.
  5. Color your gingerbread man.
  6. Hot glue one circle to the back of each leg to insert your fingers to make it run. Bend the legs and run, run, run as fast as you can!
