Let's Build A Gingerbread House Together...

The craft bug flew into our house this week with a big gingerbread smile! I have always wanted to build and decorate a gingerbread house but left to my own devises, it would have to look and be decorated just right. The boys love to build things and so what better way to get in the holiday spirit than to build a gingerbread house. Fortunately for the boys, I took myself out of the equation and let them build and decorate it for themselves, as you will soon see!  It was so easy to assemble because of course we used a kit, the ones you buy at the grocery store.  So with very little help from me the boys made their very own gingerbread house that they are so proud to show off to anyone that comes to visit!

Getting ready for the project, all you need is a Gingerbread House making Kit you can buy at your local grocery store.
My little one eager to start build the house frame before his brother came home from school.
 Big brother gets in to the act and starts decorating. Sharing the duties as they go along. Amazingly peaceful project and they worked together to complete it to the best of there ability at the time. 
So there you have it! A boys craft project that delighted them for an afternoon. I hope you enjoyed this fun holiday craft and it inspired you to do something crafty with your family. 
Happy Holidays!

I remember making gingerbread houses as a kid. It was so much fun and the best part was eating the candies and icing as we were making them!
