I love this time of the year because we are getting closer to Christmas, and a great way to celebrate is with cookies or we can pretend with felt gingerbread men instead. A great way to entertain your little ones is through felt craft projects.
Felt Gingerbread Men Craft Supplies
I used felt sheets that I ordered off of Amazon.
- brown -cookies
- white – eyes, mouth
- pink, green, purple, red, yellow -decorations
I cut different shapes so that my daughter could decorate her gingerbread men with buttons, a bow tie, swirls and zig zag patterns and of course hearts. I cut out circles for eyes and a mouth. I did everything freehand so I don’t have a template to share, except for the cookies, I found one online and then traced on to my paper from the computer screen, save some ink.
If you’ve been following along I’ve been felting like crazy because my kids love what we’ve created. Since we’re heading into the winter and Christmas season, who doesn’t love gingerbread men cookies. Well, now your little one can decorate her cookies any way she likes.
I gave her all the pieces with the decorations neatly laid out to see what she would do with them. The first thing she said when she saw it was “Cookies!”
She first looked for items for the eyes and mouth and then started piling on everything else. She started laughing when one of the gingerbread men lost their eye but that didn’t stop her and she continued on to dress him up with my cute bow tie.
If you haven’t already found my Mo Willems felt board stories, felt dinosaurs or felt pizza, please take a look. I’m running low on brown felt and may have to put in an order for more since my kids keep requesting things that need to be made with brown felt.
