Our gingerbread house is going to be a replica of our house and ended up being a larger undertaking than we expected.

In between batches of gingerbread my daughter got antsy and made her own gingerbread out of construction paper. It came out so sweet and I loved her button accents.

I thought it would be cute to make her her own gingerbread house based on her design. So I traced the outline of her house onto a piece of paper and then cut it out. I used a butter knife to cut the design out of our gingerbread dough.

My daughter wanted to make another and insisted that I make one as well so that we could decorate them together.

I set out M&Ms, Starbursts, Kit Kats, Lifesavers and a few different colors of icing. She was excited to dive in an decorate her houses.

She especially loved working with our icing dispenser. She loves kitchen gadgets.

She squeezed on the icing and then used a butter knife to spread it. (Use caution when letting your child use any sort of tools. Use your own judgment as to whether your child is ready to use them and supervision is always recommended.)

Once we finished decorating our houses, we set them on wire racks to dry.

After dinner, I told her we could pick at our houses a little. Her response, “What’s pick at?”

There was an awful lot of candy on our houses, so we only nibbled a little and then wrapped them up for another day.
