Explore your students creativity with this literacy and playdough GINGERBREAD KIT. It's the perfect follow up activity for any of the Gingerbread Stories you read together in class!

Your students will "bake" their own specialty flavor of Gingerbread Cookie (depending on the "flavor" play dough they receive. After baking, students will then plot their escape plan (3 template options included). Finally, students will write their plan on the writing template provided (3 lined options).

This activity set makes for a fun addition to your Holiday activities or class party!

Just add Playdoh and whatever fun crafty items you have on hand like pipe cleaners, googly eyes, beads, etc! I found wooden dowels from the Dollar Tree for students to use as rollers.

What's Included:

  • Gingerbread Kit Labels (attach to sandwich baggies)
  • Bakery Sheet Template
  • Gingerbread Escape Planning Template (3 options included)
  • Gingerbread Writing Paper (in various levels)


This resource includes PNG image files for you to upload to your own distance learning platform. For example, if you use Google Slides, simply add the image files as a background and your students can type on top.

***You will still need to provide the play dough bags or suggest the items needed to your students/parents/families.
