I highly recommend making your gingerbread house with a five-year-old: When the finished product looks like a five-year-old made it, you have an excuse. (Yours would have looked like Martha Stewart whipped it up, right? Right. Mine too.)
In the meantime, I’m all over these fun takes on the classic I found on Pinterest. From a carousel and a food truck to that icon of modern society, the laptop, everything seems better in gingerbread. Especially when someone else makes it.
