Directions:

  1. Have your kids draw and cut out the shape of a gingerbread man/woman or use the template I created. You can download it here
  2. Let your kiddos decorate the gingerbread man/woman with markers, crayons, glitter glue. Once they are done and it is dry trace it onto a second sheet of paper and cut it out. 
  3. Glue the two together and leave 1/4 of it open. Stuff it with crayons or a fun treat. Then glue it all the way shut. Use a clothes pin to hold it closed until the glue dries.

  2. Cut a piece of white construction slightly smaller than the inside of the card and another slightly smaller than the front cover of the card. 
  3. Use the glue stick to the white paper on the inside and leave the one for the front cover off the front. 
  4. Place a small amount of red and green washable paint on the paper plate. 
  5. Start with the loose white piece of paper. Let you kiddos stamp their fingers alternating one with red paint and one with green paint to make a candy cane shape. Let it dry. 
  6. On the inside of the card let your kiddos stamp their fingerprints in green paint to make the shape of a tree. Add decorations to the tree with glitter glue. 
  7. Once the cover and the inside are dry glue the candy cane sheet to the front of the card. 
  8. Use markers to write greetings and continue decorating!
