Gingerbread House-Making has evolved over the years for me. Eight years ago I was baking my own gingerbread, cutting the house pieces with a knife, making hard-tack candy for stained glass windows, inserting a light inside the house, creating a door that really opened, made my frosting from scratch.....you get the picture!!
Fast forward to 2012 and it's pretty pathetic!! Enter the pre-baked gingerbread house purchased from the craft store and the GLUE GUN!!
Yes, glue gun!!
It's only a few days until Christmas and my children are finally out of school. They only care about putting candy on the house and I ran out of time. It was lots of fun anyway - and NO STRESS!! The glue gun worked amazing (I know you are all cringing, as am I!)
The children got to create and mommy wasn't hovering making sure they looked picture perfect.
Ryan's roof was made out of Captain Crunch Berries Cereal!
They turned out cute and the children could not tell all the corners I cut! Gingerbread House Making Day....check!!
