Every year I decide to focus on certain types of crafts with my children. Last year we tried to do lots of different Christmas toilet paper roll crafts so this year I wanted to do something different.

My main focus this year are reindeer crafts and pop up cards for Christmas. There are so many different options for these and so far we have done a snowman version and a Santa Claus.

I opted for a pop up Gingerbread Man card craft as my little kids love to make the Gingerbread house and I knew they would love to make this alongside it. We love doing related crafts together. 

My Christmas pop up card craft instructions will help you replicate this adorable Gingerbread Man card. This is suitable to send to kids and adults alike.
