PostHeaderIcon Gingerbread Fun continues at Antique Stores

As our little fun Gingerbread holiday bits and pieces go back into boxes, one place has the fun year round. Walking through our local Antique store this weekend we were greeted with a smiling face of a new Gingerbread Man pitcher. Well, new to us, it’s a few years old.

Looking around, we saw all kinds of fun Gingerbread items we just can’t live without. Some are very holiday based, others are cute kitchen items that will look great year around. Need a Gingerbread Man fix, just buzz by your local Antique store.

PostHeaderIcon Snap together Gingerbread Cookie Toys for Kids

Not all Gingerbread Cookies are editable. We are not talking about poorly cooked cookies, but rather Gingerbread Men and Women decorations, and now… kids toys!

We found these fun little toy set (small, so not for kids under 3) of all kinds of Gingerbread Men and Gingerbread Women. “Learning Resources – Smart Snacks Gingerbread Sort & Snap” Each painted up colorfully and unique to each other. An added bit of fun for kids is that the hands snap together so they can make Gingerbread ‘people’ chains. Since each figurine is different from the next, it could be fun to make a chain of grouping two next to each other with the same color hair then the same color pants, etc… Hmmm… maybe we need to get a set for the adults here to play with.

PostHeaderIcon Making Gingerbread Men Cookies on the iPad and iPhone

No, don’t use your iPad as a serving tray or a plate for your cookies in the oven. This is more about having fun making ‘digital’ cookies on your iPad or iPhone. The application available through the iTunes app store is ‘Cookie Doodle‘.

With the app, you choose your dough, roll it out, choose the cookie cutter, bake and then decorate to make them ‘your’ creations. Your cookies can be saved as an image or sent out with an email right from your iPad and iPhone. One cookie doesn’t say what you want to say? You can create a plate of cookies to share, giving you more oportunities to show your Gingerbread decorating creative side. Grab your copy of Cookie Doodle for a bit of family fun too, there is no charge to make endless number of cookies after the initial 99 cents for the app.

PostHeaderIcon Interactive Gingerbread Man Online Coloring Page for the Kids

Don’t have your box of color crayons handy? Not a problem. We found this Web page that has a great bit of fun for the kids. No need to worry about marking up the table cloth when a pen goes wide off the paper. This interactive color site has a fun Gingerbread Man that kids of all ages (yes, that means us too!) can color between the lines using their computer. There is a wide variety of color choices so no two finished pieces of art will look the same.

If you want to keep the creation, a print feature is provided for too. The default printing looks like a full size page of paper so the Gingerbread Man will be enjoyed by many.

There are many other holiday coloring outlines available, so there is something for just about everyone.

PostHeaderIcon Gingerbread Men, Women and House Stand Ups and Wall Stickers

Sometimes you will find Gingerbread Men and Houses where you weren’t looking for them. Normally, Gingerbread fun items are in with the Holiday area of stores that are general retailers or specialty stores. Who would have thought… ToysRUs?

The fun finds we had are Gingerbread Men, Women and House Stand Ups. These are not little doll size, the Gingerbread People stand 44 inches tall and the House is 60 inches tall. These are available directly from ToysRUs’s Web site. I have included links to the pages I found, not sure how long they will be good or if these are regular year round offerings.

Gingerbread Man Standees – Set of 2: The set of 2 freestanding Gingerbread Man stand at 44 inches high x 33 inches wide and are made of cardboard.

Gingerbread Man Standee (Not sure if this is the house or just a even ‘bigger’ Gingerbread Man): The Gingerbread Man stands at 60 inches tall and made cardboard. Assembly is required.


Gingerbread Wall Graphic: Decorate your walls with our Gingerbread Wall Graphic. Just peel and stick the removable decals to your wall to add some fun to your holiday party.

PostHeaderIcon Gingerbread Crafts and Activities with the whole family

Gingerbread Women, Men and Houses isn’t just cookie making. There are a lot of fun things the Gingerbread Fan Family can do together. There are many craft ideas online, a few even offer templates and project outlines so there is a lot less resource hunting having to be done. And, I will admit it, they usually cover up my lack of drawing ability with already laid out artwork. Whew!!

Two sites you might be interested in.

Crafts for Kids” offers a page of fun resources, free for you to use:

Also, a resource for finding craft bits is Etsy. Usually people think of this site as having only completed work created by others. This is a link as an example to Gingerbread bottle cap art bits. You get quite a few for just a couple dollars that will take hours for your family to use as everyone creates their own favorite art.
