Who doesn't love making a gingerbread house? It's such a fun way to spend some time with family and friends over the holidays (not to mention a great excuse to eat more sweets!). In hopes that you'll start a new tradition of gingerbread house building I'm giving away a deluxe kit from Ginger Mouse, to arrive just in time for Christmas! Just leave a comment at the bottom this post to enter.
My 3 year old Stella and I had so much fun making this house in our pjs this past weekend. It was a good team effort with her selecting the candies to put on next and me getting to go crazy accessorizing and adding little flourishes of frosting while she was busy sampling half the candies. ;)
I've made my fair share of gingerbread houses before, but this that was kindly sent to us by Ginger Mouse was in a league of its own. Unlike the run-of-the-mill gingerbread houses at the supermarket with questionably edible candy, Ginger Mouse's kits come with a full pound of premium chocolates and candy! Stella and I can both attest to just how yummy they are.
The fun started from the moment Stella opened the box from UPS and started taking inventory of all the different candies that came along with the kit (Ginger Mouse ships across the US through their website and Amazon) :
She also had fun figuring out what color came next in our pattern of candy Christmas lights along the roof!
This was our first gingerbread house we've made together, and I'm looking forward to making it an annual tradition. Next year Hazel can join in the fun too!
