Free Gingerbread Templates

A Gingerbread Template is a wonderful approach to get youngsters to consider what a gingerbread man, girl, or house might look like. Young learners absolutely love the classic story of The Gingerbread Man, especially around the holiday season when they may frequently find that distinctive gingerbread scent that so many of us associate with Christmas and winter.

They can use the template to simply decorate any gingerbread-themed picture or perhaps turn it into a Christmas decoration by forming chains of gingerbread men or girls which they can hang up either at home or in a classroom which also makes it a superb resource for teachers, helping to get the children excited for the upcoming festive celebrations.

If you have decided to bake some delicious gingerbread cookies, why not try and use the templates to give your cookies the ideal shape and structure? You can simply print them, cut them out, and use the template as a guide for the shape that the cookies need to have, which will be extremely handy regardless of whether you are making a house or gingerbread person. This will simplify the baking process a lot more and means that you do not have to worry about taking your cookies out of the oven to see some odd shapes. The only thing that you will need to think about is making sure that the dough is as it should be.

Gingerbread Template Types

  • A Gingerbread House Template can be used to create an adorable gingerbread house by printing and decorating it. Likewise, some individuals print this template and use it as a guide to create an actual gingerbread house, using the sides of the house to cut the shapes using dough;
  • A Gingerbread Man Template is used to either decorate a gingerbread man or to create a gingerbread man paper chain by cutting out several of these templates. These chains can then be later used as decorations to create a Christmas atmosphere in any place;
  • A Gingerbread Girl Template is similar to that of the gingerbread man but instead uses a girl as the template – after all, it would be unfair to only use gingerbread men. Just like with the gingerbread man, you can use this template to create decorations or to just simply keep your young ones occupied.
