Gingerbread Houses

December 22, 2008

My mom helped my son and daughter make gingerbread houses last week.  They used small milk cartons as the base and meringue to secure graham crackers to the roof and sides.  My children had so much fun decorating them with all the different candies.  It was a great craft project for them.

    Awesome! I never thought of using meringue (we used some concoction from a kit a few years ago when my sister and I made them)–looks less messy! Or maybe you did a better job of keeping the site clean!

    Wishing you and your family a beautiful Christmas and a great start to 2009!

    If you’re posting stuff like this all the time, then I’m sorry I don’t read more often. The houses are very amazing (although, I can’t tell that they are gingerbread) and the kids are so cute. Good idea. Fun, traditional, inexpensive, and creative.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I hope you are finding many reasons for great joy.

    SO cute! looks like they had fun, and were very creative. we did a gingerbread TRAIN. the yard isn’t done yet, so that will be something we do to pass the time this week until school is back on. That and some REPAIR work. Last week Thomas came running up to me saying, “I can’t find Percy!” That is never good. We found him on the dining room table trying to eat the candy off the train.
