Gingerbread Cottage

This was the first year that we tried to make a gingerbread house at home.  I don’t think any of us really had the patience for it.  Shockingly, it is still standing….

And after taste testing the candies that we were using, both kids decided we picked gross ones, so no one is picking anything off of it.  🙂

Some of the gumdrops did slide down a bit…oops.  Messy, but fun.  Most definitely not our finest artistic achievement.  But we are all thrilled it has not collapsed.

    Is this the one that comes as a kit? If so, I agree, the candy is gross!!! We tried it last year and never again. My MIL made one out of graham crackers with Sophia this year, and she got her own candy – much better!!

    Yes, it was a kit. Edison did a graham cracker one last year in kindergarten and I agree – that was way easier AND the candy was actually tempting to pick off….
