Gingerbread Man

  • Read as many different versions of "The Gingerbread Man" as you can find!
  • Gingerbread Colors
    1. Make several gingerbread man puppets in different colors (one gingerbread man is red, one is orange, one is blue, etc) on popsicle sticks.
    2. Click on the gingerbread man picture above to print it on several colors.
    3. Hold up one of the gingerbread puppets and have the kids run in place as you recite the rhyme below.
    4. Have them name the color and stop running! Continue with the rest of the colors.

Run, run, as fast as you can

Until you can name

The color I am!

  • Make gingerbread cookies together. Decorate them to look like gingerbread men.

  • Or have the kids play “Gingerbread Man: Made to Order
    1. Have them guess how many M&Ms, gumdrops, red hots (or whatever decorations you’re using) it will take to decorate their gingerbread man.
    2. Write the number down
    3. Help them count out that many candies
    4. Decorate the gingerbread man!
