>Make a gingerbread house. And eat it! (I believe that gingerbread houses should be gobbled up!)
You will need gingerbread OR graham wafer crackers (you can buy these, which is easier), royal icing (you can find a recipe here–you also might be able to buy some from a bakery or find mix in a grocery store), candies, a plate and a knife to spread the icing.
Use the icing as glue to hold pieces of graham wafer crackers (or gingerbread) together to make a house shape. Decorate it with pieces of candy.
Take a picture and then eat it!
Make this a family activity: Build one large gingerbread house together or make small, individual houses.
This activity promotes creativity and a little bit of baking skills.
