Decorating Gingerbread Houses

Every year our family has a gingerbread house decorating party.

This year I invited my friend, Karla, and her 11 children.

That means I made 19 gingerbread houses the night before the party. I had some little elf helpers, so it didn't take long at all. (See my instructions for building simple gingerbread houses from graham crackers.)

As usual, fun was had by all,


and old alike.

    Thank you so much for the idea we did the same today with our family and our small groups kids. They had a blast!!!

  2. We did the same here on Saturday. My boys had a blast! Thanks for the idea! It was fun for my husband and me too.

  3. Thank you for this idea! Ours were the smaller version (my children are 2,4,6) They really enjoyed it. I think this will be a new family tradition!

  4. That is many children all with icing! You are brave ladies. hehe

    Super idea! Thanks for sharing with us.

    I wish you a great Christmas and a season filled with love, laughter, and time with family!

  5. Hi Connie- I decided to give this a try and it was a lot of fun! It ended up being almost a decluttering craft since I was able to get rid of so much old Halloween candy. With the crackers being super cheap and having the rest of the “ingredients” this was super cheap and the kids got quite creative! Thanks for sharing.

    Making Gingerbread Houses like yours has been a tradition of ours too for many years! We love it!!! We actually use white almond bark for “cementing” the walls of the houses and it hardens really quick!
