Construct with Gingerbread!

We love making things out of gingerbread! It's fun, and not as difficult as one might expect. We moved from making the gingerbread from scratch, to buying a kit, complete with frosting mix and candy!

Here are some of the things we've learned from making a few houses through the years. First, make sure that the board you make it on is sturdy--either that, or don't plan on moving it! Next, you probably won't eat it anyway, so save yourself some grief and just hot glue the thing together. Finally, it's supposed to be fun, so don't worry about perfection! (I'll save Anna the embarrassment and not share the picture of her spreading frosting on with her hands!)
