Gingerbread houses

I love gingerbread houses-- especially if they're not houses! Me and my family are having a competition this year! I can't show all the creations, but this is a picture of my train :)

Recipes here.

Other variations can be better for kids. Start with cream cartons and Graham Crackers to skip the long baking and cooling process-- and to limit frustration. Hit the dollar store for pretty candies to decorate, and use any extras in tiny packages to have the kids take to neighbors. If you don't want the gingerbread sitting around for long periods of time, the kids can even eat it, but leaving it out lets it collect dust (which gives you an excuse to throw it away without anyone getting a sugar high from it).
