Gingerbread Man Painting

We are studying The Gingerbread Man all week long!  I am reading all of the different gingerbread stories and the kids are LOVING it!  I decided to try a gingerbread painting with them!  

First, we wrote a sentence about the story, suing simple sentences and sight words! ;)

Then I traced a gingerbread outline on a piece of large construction paper.  The kids painted the inside of the lines brown.

Ok, I don't know if this is a horrible idea, because it isn't washable (shhhhh), but I let them make squiggly lines with puffy paint.  I won't do this again next year, just because eventually someone will get paint on their clothes.  This went smoothly though, I monitored a table of them all painting at once and we didn't have any problems!  #Iluckedout

The following day we painted white eyes, three glitter buttons, and one red smile!

Along with this painting craft we have been using parts of my Gingerbread Language Arts and Math Unit!  


  1. I am obsessed with all things gingerbread! YUMMY, CUTE, AND FUN! :)

  2. Love this idea- You can mix glue and shaving cream to make puffy paint. I use it for our Snowy Day pictures each year. As long as it is thick it should dry nice and puffy.

  4. Hello, friends! I saw this cute post about painting gingerbread on this forum and thought I'd share my experience with this painting company that I recently hired to paint the walls in my house and they provided me with a professional painting service for the walls, ceilings and other surfaces in your house. I was amazed at the quality of their work and professionalism. They used only high quality paints and equipment and worked very quickly and efficiently.
