Can’t catch me I’m the Gingerbread Man is constantly played in our house coming up to Christmas. I think my son secretly hopes the little Gingerbread man will outsmart the fox but of course it never happens. 

If you want to make some Gingerbread men that do not disappear you need to make these Christmas paper bookmarks that kids can use over and over again when reading. Such a cute Gingerbread craft for children.
