It all began with a little pea and not so perfect gingerbread man cut out, Phoebe was upset that her gingerbread looked like they had broken legs well Pyper and I thought they looked like Zombies! So to keep my littlest little stay jolly and not be upset Ginger Zombies and a Riley girl tradition was made!
We use the Pillsbury ready made cookie dough it’s much easier and actually tastier than that one year…………yikes we won’t talk about that OK we will …….. the year was 2016 the stores every single store didn’t sell the dough I thought I was late the all sold out but a quick google search would show they never sold them in the first place SO we went homemade because no one sold them!
We started this new tradition to our little Riley girl family December of 2015 this will be out 4th year and they are now expected by some of our friends but mostly the peas Uncle Ben (my brother).
And of course we have to have just the right way to give them right? The first year we found the PERFECT tin from Jo Ann Fabrics but we never found them again so we just look for ones we can zombify.
Ever made ginger zombies or crazy ginger bread people we did Ginger Ninjas once too but they didn’t stick like zombies? Let us know how you do them!~
In the meantime please enjoy these Ginger Zombie making day pics through out the couple of years!
2016 – We did a gingerbread house because because the homemade dough was gross.
2017 – The year the oldest pea just wasn’t interested…..
