Nanny Activity Idea – Gingerbread Man Chain

Tuesday, December 15, 2009


Every child sighs in awe the first time they witness the unfolding of a paper chain. It’s ‘paper magic’. This variation of a classic activity is sure to make you adored as the best nanny ever.

You will need:

Large sheet of brown paper (if you can’t get brown paper, do as we did and paint some white paper brown)
Glitter glue
Black pen


Fold the paper concertina style. Draw a man shape  side by side three times on the front of the paper, making sure the hands touch the folded edges. Cut out the man shapes.

Decorate the gingerbread men with the glitter glue and black pen.

Special thanks to the Activity Village for sharing another wonderful project and being a great resource for nannies and aupairs.
