Here’s how to get started

Make a Gingerbread Girl

Have your little one lie down on the floor beside the kraft paper roll. Unroll the paper on the floor the same length as your child.

Cut the paper slightly longer than the length of your child. Tape it down to the floor with the masking tape.

Using a pencil trace around your child’s body on the kraft paper to create an outline of your child and your gingerbread man outline.

Retrace the outline using the black sharpie. I did not trace my daughter’s outline with the black sharpie the first time as I I did not want to get the permanent marker on her clothing.

Make a Gingerbread a Face

Have your little one draw a face on their gingerbread man outline using the Kwik Stix Solid Tempera Paint. These are great for activities like this as they are paint but they dry in seconds. Making them ideal painting tools for toddlers!
