We have been having all sorts of fun with the gingerbread paint recipe we shared back in November.  There are so many fun ways it can be used from finger painting to gingerbread houses to this fun Gingerbread Garland Craft!


For this Christmas craft you will need:

  • Gingerbread paint (cinnamon & tempera paint mixed- full details here)
  • Brown construction paper or gingerbread man cut- outs (we found foam gingerbread shapes at the Dollar Tree, but you can make your own too)
  • String or ribbon
  • A black marker to make the gingerbread faces

Let your little ones draw faces on your gingerbread man shapes (or do it for them if they are too small).  Then have them paint the gingerbread men with the scented paint.

 Once your children are done painting the gingerbread men allow them to dry. Then string them together using the ribbon or string.  Hang them anywhere in the home you wish and enjoy the smells of the season!
