Gingerbread has been long associated with Christmas time. Kids like to make and decorate both gingerbread houses and gingerbread men. 

These can be edible or non edible. While they taste amazing I like to use them for Christmas decor also. 

Previously we have made a Gingerbread House craft with paper, some Gingerbread man bookmarks and a cute Gingerbread man pop up card.

My latest activity involves some painting and crafting and is fun idea for Mom and her kids on a cold wet afternoon in the run up to Christmas. 

My step by step painting instructions can be found below alongside images to help you ensure you are completing it correctly.
