These printables are the perfect gingerbread activities to accompany several favorite gingerbread stories! Grab your favorite gingerbread book, throw a printable with it, and you are all set! There is even a gingerbread man hunt included! Just print, set up the cards where they need to be, and you are all set!! My students LOVED this every year!

These printables were created with my classroom favorite books in mind.
