How to make a yarn wrapped gingerbread man:
Cut a gingerbread man shape out of your cardboard. You can print out gingerbread man template out here. I cut little slits along the outside of the gingerbread man to help keep the yarn from slipping, although that is just preference.
Cut a long length of brown yarn. Tape one end to the cardboad. Wrap the yarn around the cardboard every which way direction until you have a fluffy gingerbread man.
When you reach the end of your yarn, tape or tie it off on the backside of the gingerbread man.
This is such a great fine motor activity for kids. Wrapping yarn can be a little tricky for little fingers.
