Gingerbread House Party

This week one of the moms in my homeschool group came up with the idea to get together & have the kids build gingerbread houses.  I had never made a gingerbread house without the kit (my limited crafty personality), but they used graham crackers, vanilla icing, & assorted candies.  

So everyone brought the different items & we met at J's house.   The kids had a great time putting them together.  Some collapsed from the weight of all the candies while others really held up.  The good thing about them is that you could actually eat them & they tasted great!

So if you want to make a gingerbread house to display as a decorative item, get the kit.  However, if you want to build something fun that you can actually eat at the end, use the graham cracker & icing idea.  The kids loved & sweets all at the same time!
