I thought it would be fun to make gingerbread items with the boys. I picked out a house for my five year old and a train for my three year old. The first part was pretty easy. We just iced the sides together and let it dry. The next part was the tricky part. We had to decorate our creations with candy. It was easy for my five year old to resist the candy, but not my three year old. From every angle he was popping a candy in his mouth. It was fun, but beware on the candy.
