I love to see what ideas my kids come up with from one year to the next. Each year I try to do something a bit different, so we are not always creating the same old gingerbread house. One year we made an entire tiny village of tiny gingerbread houses. The next year we made one bit house with an entire family of gingerbread men. Another year, we created a gingerbread train that was full of tiny presents for my kids.
There is so much creativity that comes out of my children when they have a vision for their gingerbread house and I love that with this one family Christmas activity we are creating happy, lasting memories.
