One thing we absolutely love this time of year is gingerbread men . I’ll be honest , I love anything gingerbread , especially coffee :)

We picked up a little kit from Aldi with ready made dough in and a cutter and some sprinkles and thought it would be perfect one morning to do with Nila.

She loves baking and all crafts and thought this ready made set would be a perfect stress free activity.

For some reason I could not find the rolling pin! Honestly , was a game of find the rolling pin , the fake failed !. So I opted for a fry light bottle - it worked :)

We got all the festive cutters out and did some lovely ones - snowman, that Nila tried to eat before actually baking them Ha!, and some Xmas trees and angels .

She also wanted to do some dinosaur ones for daddy and her sisters , she is dinosaur obsessed.! We popped them in the oven and cleared up. They don’t take that long , so we let them cook whilst she went down for a nap.

Unfortunately by the time she woke up and everyone came home, decorating them was a little late as they all got demolished with warm milk and teas.

They were actually really tasty :) I’ll definitely get another kit when we go next !


  1. We love making gingerbread men, especially this time of year. I have so many cookie cutters my drawer struggles to shut

  2. This sounds like a fab little kit and your biscuits do look very yummy! I love that kit comes with ready made dough as it means the kids can get stuck straight in!

  3. There is nothing like having some gingerbread cookies for Christmas, I am loving all the cute shapes you have made. Hopefully you can decorate some the next time you make them

  4. This is so cute and looks like she is faving a fab time! My little ones had gingerbread pigs this year.
