Gingerbread village!

Left to Right  — Frank’s, Lenny’s, Nanny’s

Our advent activity for tonight was to make gingerbread houses…
well graham cracker houses!

I searched pinterest for a good glue (icing) recipe.
Not sure I found the best one one yet.
It still tool longer than I had hoped for the icing to harden..

I gave each kid a pack of graham crackers, a Ziploc baggie of icing and let them have at it.
I helped little Lenny make hers..
okay I actually made her whole house
while she watched eating all the candy i did not use!

It was fun, messy, and more work than I want to do again for a while!

As soon as they were done building and decorating
they very quickly disappeared, leaving me this…

not to mention all the icing, crumbs, and candies on the floor!
Remember a messy house is a creative house…
