Drawing the head
The gingerbread man has the rounded parts of the body. We need a compass or the round objects, for example coins.
We draw the head in the upper part of the sheet.
Draw the smaller circles, which will help us to draw the arms.
Additional figures are drawn at a small distance from the head.
Connecting the parts of the arms
The lines which connect arms are curved and smooth. Their width is equal to the circles’ width.
Marking the legs
Look carefully where the legs’ contours and the additional figures are placed.
Drawing the body
Now, connect the legs’ contours with the arms, marking the body.
Drawing the legs
Start drawing the legs, when the lower limbs will be connected to the body, start drawing the legs.
Erase unnecessary details
Carefully erase the inner lines.
They are made from the glaze in the form of small circles.
First draw two small sircles under its eyes. They will help you to connect the smile in a proper way. Erase the circles after that.
Sometimes the edges of these cookies are encircled with cream to make them look more attractive. We’ll have to draw the auxilary circles inside again.
Erase the parts of the auxilary figures and connect the cream’s line.
Gingerbread men are decorated with different details. You can add a bow tie.
Adding the buttons
You can draw them in the form of any geometric figures.
Decorate the cookies
The lines of cream on hands and legs are the mandatory details in the decoration. They are drawn in the form of zigzags.
Don’t forget to decorate the lower limbs.
The gingerbread man is traditionally of a brown color, and its contours are darker. The bow is red and the buttons are multi-colored. All other parts are white.
If for any reason your child refuses to draw, you can easily interest him or her in another activity – to color a Gingerbread man online.
