Gingerbread is one of my all time favorite themes in the classroom. It is just so much fun, and who can resist an adorable gingerbread man? We always read our favorite gingerbread man books and then have a ton of fun in the month of December with various gingerbread activities that get us in the holiday spirit. These 25+ gingerbread activities for kids are sure to be a hit with your kids too!
