Gingerbread “Cookie” Painting

This is a good way to turn ugly brown construction paper into something pretty cute. The white tempera paint looks a lot like real frosting.
1. With an 18" x 12" sheet of brown construction paper, each student folds the paper lengthwise so that it is 9" x 12" and open again. The students draw in pencil a simple body figure that is centered on the fold crease. The body hands, feet and head should be large and almost touch the edge of the paper.
2. The students use white tempera to paint the outside edge of the body with a thick white line, and then add some simple details like eyes and mouth and buttons. They are to leave some of the paper brown for the “gingerbread” look.
3. After the paint is dry, the students use oil pastels to add details such as stripe, dots, eyes and buttons.
4. Students cut out their gingerbread cookie with scissors.
