I love the idea of decorating gingerbread men during the holidays, but I don’t like the taste of gingerbread cookies! So, switching things up here and making “sugar cookie” gingerbread men in our house this year.
You will need:
- Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
- 2 eggs
- Gingerbread man cookie cutter
- Rolling pin
- Decorating icing tubes, 3 colors of choice
I made these with my son. He loved rolling out the dough, and I loved showing him!
An even bigger hit was stamping out the gingerbread men.
He got a kick out of the fact that they look like little people.
Once they were baked, we laid them out to cool. Then we stored them in a large ziplock bag, setting them aside to decorate at our Christmas Eve party.
We decorated them with colored icing tubes after Christmas Eve dinner. Even Uncle Ian took a stab at it! A fun activity for both kids and adults.
