Annual Family Holiday Craft Day

Yesterday was our annual family holiday craft day with extended family. The kids made ornaments, cookies, & gingerbread houses.
My kiddos are very proud of their creations.

While I am gingerbread house fan, I've gotten lazy and buy the pre-cooked village set that comes with icing & candy. It's the perfect size and each kid gets to do their own.
The kids have been picking off the candy & eating it, so they aren't as pretty today!

  1. WHAT?! You don't make your own gingerbread houses??? Cheaters!! ;)

    I do a gingerbread house decorating contest at work each year and I use milk cartons as the base. You just use frosting and graham crackers for the sides--works just fine.

  2. OH MY what a simply stunning blog you have here! I love it! I want to thank you for taking the time to follow me at The Q.C Shmoogle Bean :) I appreciate it! I made my own gingerbread houses last year, just littles ones and wrote up a recipe.. Royal Icing is a nightmare for me though so I'm not sure that I'll be doing it again this year ;) I may cheat too!

  3. I love family activities like this! Your little houses - and the kids who made them - are all so cute!

  4. How fun! Early Christmas family activity. I love it!

    1. We usually do it the weekend after Thanksgiving because we are so busy in December!
