Today after school I surprised the girls with gingerbread houses to make. Well, it wasn't really a surprise since they went with me to buy the candy, and knew I was making gingerbread cutouts of house parts.
But it was a surprise to me that I was actually going through with it.
Anyhoona, it was a lot of fun, but very messy. Little bits of things all over the table, sticky licked fingers, candy everywhere, and who knows what strewn willy-nilly under the table.
It. Was. So. Worth. It.
The girls, the Prince and I had a blast working on them, and they turned out SO cute!
Here are some photos. If you're interested in the recipes I used, let me know and I'll post them. I hope you get your creative juices flowing and make some of your own! Highly festive, helping everyone get in the mood for Christmas, and they make your house look so cute! Now I just need to find an unobtrusive place to keep them.
But I think the garage is out.
We covered cardboard (the backs of construction paper packets) with wrapping paper to make bases for the houses. Otherwise, where would they sit? Portability was a MUST!Then I started covering ice cream sugar cones with frosting (using a star tip) to make trees.
Next up came the beginning construction. I also used the star tip for this to make thicker ine of glue. It helps adhere better. And it looks "snowy".
Are you planning any gingerbread makings?
