Of course, we couldn’t have a Gingerbread Boy without adding a Gingerbread Girl to the mix! With a cute little dress and hair bow, this Gingerbread Girl Christmas Accordion Craft is the perfect addition to our Christmas craft series.
Gingerbread Girl Christmas Accordion Craft
The supplies for our Gingerbread Girl are the same as for the Gingerbread Boy.
Cardstock or Construction Paper
Printable Template (found below)
After downloading the template, print out each template page on the corresponding color listed at the top of each page. Alternatively, you could use white and color in your Gingerbread Girl with crayons or colored pencils.
After printing out your template, cut each piece out and set aside.
Grab your glue and begin assembling your Gingerbread Girl. Start by gluing the dress onto the body, followed by the white dress collar and the head. Then add the white “frosting” to the top of the head and finish off with the hair bow.
After allowing to dry, grab your black marker and pink crayon and draw a face onto your Gingerbread Girl.
Next, cut four 2 inch wide strips of brown paper. Create an accordion fold with each strip by folding the paper back and forth as shown.
After each piece is folded, glue the strips to the back of your Gingerbread Girl, creating arms and legs for your character.
Allow to dry and you’re finished! Change up your Gingerbread Girl by using different colors for her dress and bow or color in any design you want!
