Pablo and his sister Paula were watching the recipe of gingerbread on Kid TV. Paula asked excitedly “Can we make gingerbread?” Pablo instantly agreed and they ran to the kitchen. They started sifting the flour, crushing ginger, beating eggs and rolling the dough. However, the dough was too slimy and not taking the shape of gingerbread properly. Paula suddenly suggested “let’s coat my teddies with the dough and microwave”. Pablo agreed. They also added Paula’s doll as gingerbread woman. When mom returned, she found three charred toys in front of the microwave and two guilty kids standing with hung heads.
