This Gingerbread man loo roll craft is a great one for a dark and cold afternoon.  BB and I made ours after school while listening to Christmas music.

Make sure you follow my Christmas board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own gingerbread man loo roll you will need:

  • Loo roll
  • String
  • Paper
  • Paint
  • Buttons
  • Ribbon
  • Pens
  • Glitter

Start by painting your loo roll and piece of paper a brown colour.

Next make 4 holes in your loo roll.  You need 2 for the arms and 2 for the legs.

When the paint on the paper has dried, draw 2 hands and feet and cut them out.

Cut 4 lengths of string and put the hands and feet onto them.  Then thread the other ends through the holes you made in the loo roll.

Finally decorate your gingerbread man.

When you have finished you will have a lovely gingerbread man to sit on a window ledge or your little one can use it as a puppet to play with.
