Shape Matching Gingerbread Men and Tiles: Separate cards. Look at the shapes on each gingerbread man, find the matching shape card and place it on top.

Gingerbread Count and Clip Cards: Cut out each card and count the gingerbread men. Clip a clothespin to the correct number. You can also use small pieces, such as buttons or pom poms. Simply place them on top of the correct number.

Christmas Tree Play Dough Counting Mats: : If using with playdough, laminate or slide printables into clear sleeves to protect them. Can also be used with small objects such as buttons and pom poms. After identifying the number, count out that many pieces and place them on top of the circles.

Gingerbread Man Props: Use desired amount of numbered gingerbread men while singing gingerbread counting songs. Use plain gingerbread men for stick props. Simply cut apart desired number of plain gingerbread men and tape them to popsicle sticks for the children to hold.
