These fun printable gingerbread house drawing and writing prompts will keep the kids busy decorating and colouring a gingerbread house, and writing about who lives there.
There’s no messy frosting, no roof to fall in, and no sugar rush, and you can print as many copies as you want and decorate as many gingerbread houses as you like!
This gingerbread house drawing prompt offers a starting point to spark your kids imaginations and encourage creativity. It’s a bit different to a traditional coloring page because kids need to add their own designs and ideas. There are no right or wrong ways to decorate the gingerbread house, and there is no ‘coloring in the lines’ to worry about, so it’s a great way to encourage a reluctant drawer, and a great boredom buster.
It may not be quite the same as decorating a real gingerbread house, but the kids will have lots of fun decorating this gingerbread house and colouring it in, and it’s a quick and easy Christmas activity for all ages.
Once you’ve decorated the gingerbread house, you might like to write a story about it too. The matching gingerbread house printable writing pages turns this art activity into an easy literacy activity too.
