We used half the recipe for regular cookies, and half for ornaments. The only thing we did differently for the ornaments--after they baked, we did a layer of mod podge, painted (instead of iced) and did another layer of mod podge. Anyway, I don't think I really need to explain the process.
When I was little, my own grandmother used to bake gingerbread cakes with me and my cousin, and while they baked she would always read us the story. This is is the The Gingerbread Man book (affiliate link) that we're reading this year. I love finding literature tie-ins whenever possible, or finding hands-on activities to go with our books, and these complement each other nicely.
