For this activity, your kids will need to use both the full-size and mini craft sticks. You can order either the colored or natural mini ones from Amazon or make your own.

To make your own set of mini craft sticks, cut the regular ones in half. You will then want to sand the cut edge so it isn’t sharp or rough for your kids.

How To Use The Gingerbread Man Building Letters Activity:

To begin using this letter recognition activity, your preschoolers will select a gingerbread man card and identify the letter on it.
