This is a great holiday project. We started off by reading the classic story of The Gingerbread Man and then discussed the characteristics that gingerbread men have and then I had them design their own on 5x7 pieces of brown construction paper. I had them use oil pastels for this project because they show up very bright on the brown paper. They did the "icing" first and then added any other details that they wanted. They then glued them down to "baking sheets" -which were made with cardboard covered with aluminum foil.
