Gingerbread Felt Board Activity

Shamelessly borrowing from Chasing Cheerios, I created this holiday felt board activity for M. last night. The idea is that he has to recreate a design from a photo on the gingerbread man. We haven't tried that yet; I gave him the cut-out and pieces to play with first thing this morning while I was getting organized and dressed (hence the messy bed!) and he's been enchanted with it all day! I made a similar activity at Thanksgiving with a turkey, but this one has already proven more popular. Every so often he runs up to his brother and says, "Look, Nay! Man!"

Here are a few of the designs I printed and laminated for him to copy:

I'm planning a similar idea with a snowman later in the winter.


  1. Such a great idea, my 3 yo would love this! SO many places you can go with this idea, too.

  2. Boy, I feel like a slacker! How old is your boy? A few months older than mine, I think.

  3. Very cute. I wish I'd seen this sooner. And still had my brown felt. I'd have loved to try this with my kindy class.
