Week 4 – Gingerbread

It’s the final, and of course what else could the final be but Gingerbread. That is right, this week we are asking you to make Gingerbread in aid of single parent families. Gingerbread is exciting because you could do so much with it, you could make a Gingerbread family, a Gingerbread house, make the Gingerbread logo, the possibilities are endless.
