Gingerbread Houses

I am still catching up and reviewing all the things we did at home before the holidays.

We have put together Gingerbread Houses for years.  Usually I buy a kit at the after Christmas sales and store it for the year (my kids don't eat the gingerbread anyway).  Well this year, I decided the kids are old enough to make their own.  I played around with the idea of making my own gingerbread, but after a round of the stomach flu and the regular flu at our house, I decided graham crackers would work.  So thanks to http://sweetopia.net/, my new favorite reference site, I got busy making royal icing.

Enjoy the pictures and get inspired to try it yourself with your kids.

 
 

I helped a little with the initial gluing together (with royal icing) of the houses, but they took over after that.  The tree is a sugar cone upside down.
 

Give them candy and they will build it!

Happy Holidays
