Gingerbread themed learning activities for kids. I love this gingerbread house glyph activity! Easy and fun for all ages.
Gingerbread Baby is one of my family’s favorite Jan Brett books. I love her twist on this classic story, and so I was excited to learn that it is this week’s Virtual Book Club for Kids pick!
My kids and I loved making and decorating gingerbread houses before we had to move to a gluten free diet. If anyone reading this has a great gluten free gingerbread recipe that works for building houses, we want to try it! We have made some sticker gingerbread houses, and candy gingerbread houses, but it’s not quite the same.
Since we don’t have a working recipe yet, I decided to give a gingerbread house glyph a go this year!
Gingerbread House Glyph
A glyph is a way of representing something with symbols rather than words. I made this fun gingerbread house glyph printable. Download it by clicking on the image below.
Our printer isn’t set up yet, but I plan to do that in the morning. Then I’ll update this post with images of some of my kids’ gingerbread house glyphs!

Love this idea. Hope you’re enjoying this holiday season and all the best for the coming year, dear MaryAnne.
Thank you, and happy holidays to you, Amalia!
Another great idea. Happy Holidays, dear Maryanne.
Happy holidays, my friend!
Glyphs are such a fun project to do, especially if you’re in a classroom setting.
This looks fun!
Glyphs are so fun in elementary school. The whole class starts with the same template and each result ends up so different!
