We enjoyed a few activities related to ‘The Gingerbread Man’ during the first few days back after Christmas, so I am sharing a few of them here…
Maths inspired by The Gingerbread Man
Simple Board Game
Numbered one side, plain the other. I laminated them back to back…
If you’d like a copy of this board game, you can download it here: Gingerbread Man Board Game from Rachel (“,)
Counting Gingerbread Men
You can download the numbered gingerbread men free from this post.
Threading ‘Candy Necklaces’
… and Gingerbread Men…
I thought it might be nice for them to build bridges for the Gingerbread Man, to help him escape from the fox, so set up this invitation…
They loved it! There were some fabulous creations…
Shape buttons and gingerbread men shapes…
Ginger bread Salt Tray
I mixed in salt to make it easier to ‘move’ the ginger with their fingers…
Gingerbread Cutters on the OHP
Ginger Scented Dough
Tap A Shape Gingerbread Men
Of course we had to bake some gingerbread too!
… with very out-of-date cornflakes. Not gingerbread man related, but I had to clear a space in our store cupboard and so put these into the tray for them to explore…
Thanks for reading!
Would love you to come & say hello! 🙂
