Crafts: Gingerbread People

Here are some of my favorite gingerbread craft ideas for storytime from around the web!

Blissfully Domestic’s gingerbread garland can be made with brown paper grocery bags or craft paper. You could trace a cookie cutter if you’re not so skilled at freehand drawing (which I am most decidedly not!)
