Gingerbread Man Party Activities
Play Dough Men
Set out containers of different colored Play Dough and a large amount of brown Play Dough (make the brown Play Dough the party). Give the children several different sizes of gingerbread man cookie cutters. They can make gingerbread men with the cookie cutter.
Bake in a 200 degree oven for 5 minutes to make them hard so the kids can take them home as party favors. They can easily be made into ornaments by poking a small hole at the top before baking. Tips: If you cover baking pans with some wax paper cleanup will be a breeze!
Place a cheap plastic table cloth over the work surface before the guests start working with the play dough - after the party just pick up and toss for easy clean up.
