Kid Holiday Crafts: Our Family’s Gingerbread House [GALLERY]

By Laura Peterson

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.)
