Make a string of paper gingerbread men and women to decorate a room. These simple-to-make strings make a great Christmas or winter decoration. You can drape the strings across rooms, over windows, and around the tree.
- Brown grocery bag or brown/tan construction paper
- Crayons or markers
- Glue, tape, or staples
- A long piece of green or brown yarn or string
Draw a gingerbread man or woman on a piece of construction paper. Make sure to draw a rectangle on the top of the head (your gingerbread person will hang from this rectangle, which will be folded over).
Cut out the gingerbread people. Draw a face, clothes, etc. Then fold the rectangle at the top of the head over.
Attach the gingerbread person to a long string using tape, glue, or staples. Make more gingerbread people and attach them to the string.
Hang your string of gingerbread men and women across the room for a wonderful Christmas decoration.
