I was thinking back to when the my children and nieces and nephews were younger and we made gingerbread houses together. Parents baked the pieces and the children did the decoration and sticking together. We had bowls of different types candies for decorations and the icing sugar was made to stick them together. It was really fun for them and amazing watching future artists creating these houses. The key was letting them use their imaginations.\n \nI think this is something that can be done on any day, not just Christmas. They can even use large graham crackers instead of gingerbread and have Thanksgiving or Easter themes. Would work for birthday parties as well, and keep the kids busy for hours. Have you children made gingerbread houses?
