Wintertime is the perfect time for baking and creating, and a family favorite of ours has always been baking gingerbread houses!
Take some time this busy holiday season to tie on the aprons and spread some flour on the counter while you and the kids try your hand at baking some gingerbread people.
After you find a recipe you like, grab some of these favorite books about gingerbread cookies, gingerbread people, and more:
