Use your computer to print out instructions (font is brown) for decorating the gingerbread man on white cardstock. Tear out the instructions and sponge around the edges with carmel. Stamp the gingerbread man on white, color and cut him out; use a pop dot to attach him. Use the punch to make holes for ribbon and tie a bow. On back, use wheel across top and color. Put cookie (Little Debbie Gingerbread Man - available only at Christmas), M&M's (M&M mini's can be found around holidays in little bags like this.), & frosting in cello bag and staple topper on. I did these for my 2nd graders class! Get the little baggies in the craft section, you know the ones you put beads or embordery floss in. Use a decorating bag to fill the little baggies with a small amount of vanilla frosting (store bought lasts longer).
The tag says:
Gingerbread Man Kit
To decorate your gingerbread man, first remove gingerbread man from package. Cut a small diagonal piece off one of the bottom corners of the package of frosting. Decorate your gingerbread man with the M&M's by squeezing a little frosting from the bag onto the gingerbread man where you want to put your M&M's.

This is absolutely about the cutest thing I have seen. I just wish I had seen this before my kids were already on Christmas break. But, it might just be a great thing to make up for my nieces and nephews when we go visit my husband's family for the holidays! Thanks!
