Making gingerbread houses is one of our favorite activities over the holidays. In years past, we’ve made them from scratch. By that I mean, we used graham crackers for the base of our house, purchased our own icing and candy to decorate. It wasn’t always an easy task. Well this year was different. I bought the Wilton Gingerbread House Kits with everything included. Wow! I don’t think I will ever go back. The kits are so easy! I purchased them at Michaels for $8.99 per kit and used a coupon – not a bad deal at all. I also purchased some additional candy because we like to include Holiday M&M’s on our houses.

- Have fun!
I highly recommend this activity with the kids. Get a little messy, let the creative juices flow, eat some icing, and have some fun!
