This is an easy enough craft. Just find a stencil of a person or a gingerbread man, trace onto some card stock or recycled cardboard, and cut it out. Then let you child decorate their person. You can give them more than just markers and crayons. If you have scrap fabric, yarn, buttons, beads, or other things, let them use those supplies to make their people come to life. You can also take popsicle sticks or paint stirrers and glue them on the back of the people to turn them into puppets.
