Okay, so this is a pretty easy activity to set up for the kiddos. I simply cut out a couple gingerbread shapes and added some details....buttons, eyes, mouth. I covered them with contact paper so they would last longer. Then I cut them into a couple pieces to make a puzzle. I numbered the back of the pieces so we would know which piece goes with which puzzle. Then, I just put them on the floor and let the kids find them. They were happy to put them together as they both really love puzzles. You could make this as difficult or as easy as your child needs. As they grow, you could cut the gingerbread men into smaller pieces to make it more difficult. Problem solving and spatial awareness happening here!
