Family Fun Night- Gingerbread

We have started doing family fun night in our house.  We try to do something together as a family whether it is just dinner out or something a little more involved.  Last week we did a gingerbread theme.  We started by making gingerbread man cookies.
 The boys helped cut out all the men and put them on the cookie sheet.
 While they were baking we read "The Gingerbread Man".
 Once they were done we decorated the cookies with frosting, sprinkles, mini chocolate chips and M&M's.
 My youngest son got a little carried away.
 After the cookie decorating we made Gingerbread play dough.  It smells just like gingerbread cookies but doesn't taste very good.  We used cookie cutters to cut out fun shapes.  This kept the boys busy for quite awhile.
 Some how they ended up on the table.  Since it was family fun night I decided to let it go and let them have fun.
 The last thing we did was decorate gingerbread houses.
 Each boy took their time and made their house very special.
We all really enjoyed our night together and all look forward to our next family fun night together.
