The gingerbread man features as a popular decoration and treat for the Christmas season. They’re easily identifiable and a fun figure for children to get used to.
In this activity, since your child will need to draw lines first before they colour it in, they’ll learn about the exact shape of a gingerbread man. Perhaps, in time, they’ll be able to draw a gingerbread man from scratch by themselves.
You can even bake some gingerbread before or after this activity and ask your child to help you. This way they’ll be able to grasp the concept of Christmas-themed sweets as they’re engaged in colouring.
Since this is a line activity you can even rely on it to give your child some practice for when they’ll need to draw by themselves.
