There are a million and one Christmas traditions but our favorites are the ones you can eat. The king of edible traditions has to be the Gingerbread House. It teaches kids creativity, math and patience and if disaster strikes and it all comes tumbling down there are worse things than being left with a pile of gingerbread. Here are some creative takes on the cookie house to spark your imagination. Not in the mood to design, bake, measure, assemble (reassemble) and decorate? Slap some royal icing and candy on some graham crackers and call it a day!
