Decorating gingerbread men is the perfect after school/after homework holiday activity! Ask a grown-up for help making the dough the night before so it can refrigerate all night and during the day. When you return from school, it will be ready for baking and decorating.
When I make gingerbread men with my daughter, we like to pour all the decorations into separate bowls and spread them out on the kitchen table. The frosting is our “glue” to affix all decorations. You can get creative when you make them and play holiday music and invite friends and family to participate.
And, while cookies are a "sometimes" treat, gingerbread is surprisingly low in fat. Plus, the cookies are filling, so just one with a glass of milk will do!
Sure, I’d love to share it!
Tip: You will need an electric mixer for this recipe since the dough is quite thick. A hand held beater is not equipped to do the job.
It is important for families to take a time out from their busy schedules and make the time to talk to each other. Children need a nurturing environment and positive role models in order to build self-confidence and trust while enabling them to develop and explore their identity.
Cooking together is the perfect family bonding activity. It allows for kids to actively participate, demonstrate their creativity and openly communicate not only about the food preparation, itself, but about anything else that may be on their minds. The kitchen is a safe and warm environment with endless opportunities for creating delicious, healthy meals and lasting memories. Enjoy the family time and enjoy those gingerbread cookies!
