Our Gingerbread Fun Fest is a great way for the children to truly play with their food! To keep in the holiday spirit, we set up an event where children could come and decorate their own gingerbread man cookies. Each child was able to decorate and eat 2 cookies!
Here is what we used:
- Little Debbie Gingerbread Cookies
- Assorted squeeze-on icing/frosting (assorted colors)
- Small round candies (sixlets/pearls) for eyes/buttons
- Paper to use as a mat (I printed a gingerbread man outline)
The children were free to decorate their cookies however they wanted to! The event was rounded off with Holiday music, Christmas themed coloring sheets, and a retelling of the classic story, “The Gingerbread Man”. We had a lot of fun and this was one of our biggest events of the season!
