Here’s a gingerbread man that won’t try to escape from your oven. This gingerbread man is a very simple, fun project for kids to make. It’s a great sensory experience too!
Things You’ll Need:
* Gingerbread man cookie cutter or stencil
* Cinnamon sticks
Step 1: Using a gingerbread man cookie cutter or stencil, trace the gingerbread man shape onto a piece of sandpaper. (If you don’t have a cookie cutter or stencil, see the resource section of this article for a printable stencil).
Step 2: Hold the cinnamon stick as you would a crayon, and “color” the gingerbread man with a cinnamon stick until it’s completely covered with cinnamon dust, or whatever you want to call it. This will give your ornament a wonderful scent.
Step 3: Cut out the gingerbread man, and punch a hole toward the top. Lace raffia, ribbon, or string through the hole and tie a bow.
Step 4: If you wish, you can add a face using crayons, or you can simply leave it plain. You can also glue the gingerbread man onto a decorative paper background. Read more here.
