"These adorable gingerbread man and woman are the perfect afternoon craft at Christmas time! Your kids will love making them, and using them for their favorite books during the most wonderful time of the year. All you have to is print the templates, grab paper, glue, popsicle sticks, scissors, and a pencil and get started on this fun craft. Add an extra step and laminate them before gluing them to the popsicle sticks. This way, it will last you year after year!"

Primary TechniquePaper Crafts


Materials List

  • Construction paper
  • Brown cardstock paper
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Craft glue
  • Pencil
  • Scissors


  1. Begin making your craft by grabbing your brown cardstock paper for the gingerbread man head and body base pattern. Trace and cut out the head and body base pattern from the brown cardstock paper.

  2. Next you will need to choose your colors of construction paper for the details of the gingerbread man. For this tutorial, I chose red, green, blue, pink, and white sheets, but you can get creative with your colors and make the craft unique to you! Once you have your colors, trace and cut out the other patterns from the different colored construction papers.

  3. In this step we will begin gluing the pieces together. Start by gluing the frosting hair cutout to the top side of the head pattern. Connect the bowtie pieces by attaching the small round shape cutout in the middle of the bow pattern.

  4. Continue adding details to your gingerbread man. Glue the thin wavy icing strips near the ends of the arm and leg parts (at the wrists and ankles).

  5. Use your scissors to trim the extra parts of the strips from the previous step. Next, glue the blush cutouts on both cheeks of the head.

  6. Next, you will glue the head to the top side of the body base pattern.
