Step 1: Buy a kit with precut gingerbread pieces, icing, and candy.
Step 2: Read directions (or, as 6 year old Kaley would say, "destructions").
Step 3: Decorate pieces.
Step 4: Piece pieces together (it's even better when hubby helps).
Step 5: Watch pieces to make sure they don't get all eaten.
Step 6: Have fun.
Step 7: A finished gingerbread house.
