A Sweet Tradition
Although our family has many Christmas traditions, one of the children’s favorites is a tradition that we began just last year — making “gingerbread” houses!
I have tried in the past, honestly. But real gingerbread is just so difficult to work with. I never thought about making the candy houses with graham crackers until last year, when it was a neighborhood activity that our family participated in. The children LOVED it!
This past weekend, the activity was repeated here at our neighborhood clubhouse (I am hopeful that it will be a yearly event), so while the girls worked on their house, and the boys on theirs, I made sure to take lots of photos.
Supplies needed: Some sort of base (cardboard boxes and a foam board), frosting, graham crackers, assorted candies and other foods (pretzels, marshmallows, etc), and a child’s imagination!
The Finishing Touches!
“Gator” wanted me to be sure to point out the satellite dish. See it?
