Christmas is just around the corner and making gingerbread cookies is a fun cooking activity you can enjoy with kids of all ages.

Make a simple dough, roll it out and then let all creativity go loose. Turn the traditional gingerbread man up-side-down and you will get a reindeer instead. We think this is pretty clever, fun and tasty.
