My Gingerbread Man has lots of options for decorating!

This Candy Land Gingerbread Man has lots of candy choices and colors

Here is another fun gingerbread decorating site with lots of options- shape, icing, and details!

These sites would not only be a fun one to share with your students- whole class on a Smart Board and individually- but would also be a fun way for them to practice mouse skills at the same time! 

As wonderful as it would be to create gingerbread houses with all of your students each year, it's sadly both cost and time (not to mention mess) prohibitive. 
Here are a few sites to do so virtually:

This site by Jan Brett is beautiful and fun!
