Choose from 7 different style of gingerbread house, then select either "Recipe" or "Instant".  The recipe selection gives you the list of required ingredients to make this particular gingerbread house.

Each ingredient has to be added to the bowl in the appropriate way, for example the eggs need to be 'cracked' by tapping on them, the flour needs to be 'sifted' by turning the handle of the sifter and the butter needs to be 'sliced'. This process of 'creating' and mixing the ingredients is excellent to educate your toddler or young child about what is required to bake the gingerbread house for real! 

Mix, roll the dough, cut the shapes out.  This shows how pieces of flat dough come together to create a 3 dimensional structure.  This is a great help when baking a gingerbread house for real!

Into the oven they hear a 'ding' when the time is up and you then drag the parts together to make the shape of the house you selected as your initial choice.

As if that wasn't already heaps of now get to decorate it with hundreds choices. 

Save your masterpiece, email it, then 'eat it'!
