I usually take the easy way out and buy the kit, but I thought it would be a fun learning experience to make our own gingerbread and cut out our own house. So, I found a recipe for gingerbread, printed out a template for the house and we got to work.

We took a break for lunch and then went back to work on rolling out the dough and cutting the house shapes.
