HOW TO PLAY ROLL A GINGERBREAD MAN GAME
Roll A Gingerbread Man is a super simple printable Christmas game. The goal is to be the first one to finish ‘building’ your gingerbread man. The gingerbread man is finished once he has a face, a hat, buttons, and a scarf or bowtie (both are included, you choose which to play with).
The players will take turns rolling the die. Then you’ll refer to the charts to determine what part of the gingerbread man can be placed on the body. For example, start with the hat chart. If you roll a 1 you can add the Santa hat to your gingerbread man. Roll a 6 and you can add the reindeer antlers.
Continue playing going through each body piece chart until one player has finished rolling a complete gingerbread man.
You can make this printable Christmas game as simple or as complicated as you like. It can be played with multiple players or a child can play solo. There can be a prize at the end of the game – perhaps a real gingerbread man cookie – or leave the joy of figuring out how to make a gingerbread man as the prize.
