Roll to Create a Gingerbread House

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 1 page | Grades: 2 - 6

A fun, hands-on holiday activity using a die and a chart to create a gingerbread house to include in a narrative text.

What do you get when you take drawing and add in dice? Serious holiday fun for kids! In this Christmas printable, students roll a die and follow the directions to draw their own gingerbread house. This free Christmas craft is all the more fun because every child’s creation will look completely different!

Use this free holiday teaching resource to create the setting for a narrative text or as a fun game for your fast finishers in the weeks leading up to winter break. No two students will have the same gingerbread house with this roll-to-create activity!

How to use this resource:

  1. Roll the die. Match the number rolled to a row on the chart, and see which feature is in the ‘1st Roll’ column. Draw it onto a blank piece of paper.
  2. Roll again. Match the number to a row on the chart, and see which feature is in the ‘2nd Roll’ column. Add this element to your drawing.
  3. Continue in this same manner until you have all six elements of your gingerbread house in the setting.
  4. Write a narrative text that includes your gingerbread house in the setting.

This resource works great as a writing center activity during the weeks leading up to the holidays.
