If you are like me and have zero gingerbread making skills, you can have the same effect and make the magic last a little longer by making wooden gingerbread houses. They can be hung on the tree as ornaments and are perfect for adults and older kids who think they are too cool to decorate real gingerbread.
If you are like me and have zero gingerbread making skills but still want edible houses, graham cracker squares are perfect, especially if you have a lot of kids to entertain. Guests can tote their creations home in window gable boxes like we did at our party a few years back.
