Holiday Craft - Gingerbread Houses

this was such a fun thing to do, i wish we would have started doing these years ago...
we started off with 2 of these kits
they run around $10, and i have seen them everywhere
and off they went

my girls had so much fun making these together

they didn't even fight while making them

and they even helped each other out...when needed

we had to reconstruct Josie's house several times

because the roof keep sliding down

Taylor's house

Josie's house

i definitely recommend doing this with your children it was lot's of fun

for them and me

my girls are all about traditions

so i am sure we will be doing this every Christmas
