The bad news is: it's not edible. But if you're not up for the labor involved in baking and decorating a real gingerbread house for the holidays, follow the Alpha Mom lead, grab some cardboard and paint, and create this gingerbread house the kids can actually climb into.
All you'll need is cardboard boxes, paint in your choices of color, and a hot glue gun. Check out the model Alpha Mom created before constructing her gingerbread house. Via Alpha Mom.
