Many families have traditions involving gingerbread men – whether they are made from actual gingerbread or not – and they often involve baking cookies in the shapes of gingerbread men and even building their houses. The most enjoyable part of the gingerbread men (or house) tradition is undoubtedly the decorating! You can use all kinds of candy, bright colors, and icing to make your creations unique. But the creativity need not be exclusive to sprinkles and candy canes alone – decorating gingerbread men and their houses is just as fun using crayons and colored pencils!
Below, we have 12 gingerbread men coloring pages and 8 gingerbread men (and women!) templates that can all be used to express your child’s creativity!

Then get out a fresh box of crayons and/or newly sharpened colored pencils, a cup of hot chocolate, and turn on some Christmas tunes. That’s all that is required to have a fun family Christmas activity that will create memories for years to come.
