Gingerbread Boy (or Girl) Puppet

Our town recently held a Gingerbread Festival.  We decided not to attend since my oldest is allergic to milk and eggs (she can't touch the frosting to make one), so I decided to do some of our own gingerbread activities this week!

This simple puppet is fun and comes in very handy for our reading of Gingerbread Baby!


  • Gingerbread pattern (I had one in my files, but you can print a girl or boy here.)
  • Brown paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Embellishments (buttons, stickers, sequins, wiggly eyes, scrap paper, foam, etc.)

1)  Draw or print a gingerbread boy or girl pattern on brown paper (I cut down construction paper to fit our printer).

2)  Cut out and embellish as desired.

3)  Glue a craft stick handle to the back and use the cut-out as a puppet.
