Here is a super simple printable Gingerbread Man that you can use for some not so messy Gingerbread man decorating fun!
We decided to laminate ours so they can be used over and over.
One super easy way to use them is to use them like a dry erase board for the kids to decorate and add buttons, eyes, hair etc. 
But you can also use them as a play dough mat once they’ve been laminated.
My kiddos had an absolute ball using plasticine! We used plasticine mostly because that is what I had in the craft cupboard all ready to go in a range of different colours but playdough would work just as well! 

Super fun but simple activities for this super fun time of year! :o} Love the creativity that came from providing a simple, plain base for them to do with as they please.
