The Gingerbread Man Box is a set of open-ended play materials to encourage exercise while reading the book 'Keep Running, Gingerbread Man.' Included in this box are decoratively constructed materials like Five Handmade Bowling Blocks, a yoga block, and Four Handmade Bean Bags that can be used to retell the story with multiple scenarios of the running gingerbread man. While playing with these materials children can exercise their bodies (and minds!) and focus on their immediate needs while using their imagination.
