I have always wanted to build a gingerbread house. But, I don’t always enjoy baking, and I have a short attention span when it comes to crafting. Combining the two, and the thought of buying all of the candy, icing, etc. needed to actually make the house always seemed daunting and overwhelming. Daunting and overwhelming does not sound like fun. So. No gingerbread house building for me! Until now.
Now that companies make gingerbread house and train kits (both Trader Joe’s, Toys R Us house kits), it’s much easier to accomplish. My sister-in-law had the great idea and bought these. We built the gingerbread train in Johnson City, TN and took the gingerbread house with us to Cary, NC. Gingerbread building is quite tempting for little ones who want to eat the building materials. And it’s a tad bit messy, but so much fun. The best part was watching and helping Enoch make memories with family. Fun times!!
I feel a building contest in the works for next year…
