Decorating gingerbread men

Today was another one of those days where it was blowing a gale and pouring with rain so we couldn't go out (Daddy takes the car to work so we are on foot all week). I had dragged the girls to Tesco the day before and as they were really good, I had secretly picked up a packet of those decorate yourself Gingerbread men with sweets and icing. Little 1's friend came to play this morning and after they had tired of dressing up and playing preschool's, I pulled out the gingerbread men and they got stuck in decorating.

Little 2 had a little help from Mummy!
Such a simple activity and it didn't cost much either, I added a few extra smarties and had some writing icing left over from Little 2's cake decorating so there was plenty to go around and a few left to eat too. 

They looked great and best of all there was one left for Mummy to eat too, it was very yummy. A cheap, fun, tasty activity that kept the girls quiet for 20 minutes, we love baking and decorating tasty things in this house.

    Great fun. Potato decorated vanilla shortbread recently, but it wasn't as fancy as this. Next time we're going to try adding smarties and sprinkles too. It's wonderful to get the kids in the kitchen when they're little x
