Welcome to another week of themed activities from the virtual book club! This weeks theme is gingerbread men and our book we are reading is The Gingerbread Man by Jim Aylesworth.
I have in the past made some cute counting cards with bugs on them so I thought I would re-use these and upgrade them to even cuter gingerbread men for the season.
The cards needed a something extra to make the activity interactive, so I added some sparkly pom poms. The pom poms are small enough to fill the cards so they were perfect to use.
We laid out the cards by counting the gingerbread men and matching them to the numbers. Then the pom poms were added to each card. Other than counting, adding this to our activity was a great encouragement of fine motor skills!
We also added different colors per card. Color recognition!
Grab the printable here. I’ve printed mine on cardstock and laminating is good idea for long time use.
So much fun! Be sure to check the bottom of this post for more gingerbread man activities for the group!
