Kid Holiday Crafts: Our Family’s Gingerbread House [GALLERY]
It's that time of year again. No, I don't mean candy canes and mistletoe, I mean awesome crafts made by kids! I have a whole trunk full of stuff my kids have made for me as gifts.
Stuff Treasures I can't bring myself to get rid of, no matter how...beautiful it is.
Part of the Holiday Season for many is the annual assembly of the Gingerbread House. I cheated and bought the kit. Because if I bake any Gingerbread I'm eating it and not sticking it to cardboard to look at for the next two weeks.
When we opened the package, every side of the house--the roof, sides, and the base--were in pieces. Good thing I still had the instructions. Step 2 told me "if part of your Gingerbread House is broken don't be distressed. Use the frosting to re-attach the broken pieces and wait 45 minutes."
We did that. It still fell apart. We finally got the thing assembled and decorated. It's a good thing too. We finished just in time to watch it fall apart/broken/eaten from for the next two weeks.
I do want to note that if Pee Wee Herman made a Gingerbread House it would look JUST...LIKE...THIS!!! (That's a Pee Wee's Big Adventure reference.)
