So when my friend Janet suggested we try gingerbread houses with the kids, I knew I couldn't say no. We each bought a kit and decided the grown-ups would put the houses together and then let the kids decorate.
The kids thought the candy was so
tempting colorful. The boys lasted about 6 minutes, but the girls sure had fun decorating!
The gingerbread wasn't very tasty, but it seems to be much more durable than the homemade variety. Maybe it's more durable because I usually eat the homemade kind before it gets turned into a dwelling place for Hansel and Gretel.
Do you usually make a gingerbread house? Any secrets of success?
