Better late than never.
The kids decorated a gingerbread house after Christmas dinner was all cleaned up. My intention was to buy the kit that had 4 small houses in it to decorate, but that’s not what we ended up with. We ended up with one large house instead. My dad and I put the house together- what a pain. Next year I’ll use a hot glue gun instead of the provided frosting (glue).
I slapped on some glue on each side and roof, and let the kids go for it, after 2 minutes, I turned the house, so each kid got to decorate each side of the house. It worked out well.
