Gingerbread Man Story and Activity

The Gingerbread ManTo celebrate the launch of our traditional tales range by Yellow Door. We will be doing a series of posts about traditional tales and creative activities linked to the stories. Each post will include a free downloadable template. All the activities have used with a group of reception children at Shalbourne C of E Primary school I go into the school every week to do a creative storytelling session. This blog is made up the activities I do each week, along with all the templates I create to hopefully save you some preparation time.

We are kicking off with one of my favourites, The Gingerbread Man. The repeated phrases in it are always a great for building interaction.

Firstly we made puppets to interact with the story with. You can download the template for the puppets here.

I put out a variety of colouring materials and fabrics for the children to decorate their puppets. I think they look great don’t you.

We then sat in the order the characters would appear and acted out the story.
