I'm the Gingerbread Man!

Preschoolers love the story of the gingerbread man, who tries to run away after being made. Read the story together, then make a big gingerbread man yourselves. Cut out a large, basic gingerbread shape from a brown-paper grocery bag, then give your child buttons, rick-rack or ribbon trim, felt and paper shapes, and a glue stick or bottle of white glue.
