This is such a fun way to celebrate this Christmas season. The kits are usually found on sale at Wal-Mart or Michael's. We divide the family up into teams to create their gingerbread house. It is comical to watch the teams as they 'argue' over how to design the house, how to pipe the icing, how to...too funny. I am amazed every year as these little pre-cut houses turn out so different. You can see last year's post brought us a redneck garage home and an adobe house to name a few.
This year brought us a "girly" house in honor of the new daughter born to that team; a flatten tent with so much candy that probably collapsed the 'tent;' a 'welcome to wal-mart' smiling house much to the consternation of one of the partners; a 'two-faced' house as the team couldn't decide how to decorate so each took a side; and finally our typical ginger bread look.
It was a fun afternoon. I think it makes it more fun to make teams and everyone decorated at once. You should try it for a fun twist to the Christmas season.
Hoping your Christmas is not as stressful and putting fun traditions into your home.
Do you have one you would like to share? Would love to hear new ideas.
