Baking gingerbread cookies with kids is definitely an activity to do while listening to Christmas music, in full view of the Christmas tree all lit up.

Don't hesitate to modify the spice quantities I've suggested. Love cinnamon or ginger? Throw in some more and the recipe will be just as good.

As for shapes, there are a huge variety of cookie cutters out there to have fun with. In Quebec, the place to go for cookie cutters is Ares.
