Our church had their “Kids of the King” bell choir party this evening. They decorated cute, little gingerbread houses. Only thing is that they weren’t made of gingerbread. But still. That’s how I shall refer to them… Anyway, here’s how it went down…
We started with one house each. Of course there were some extras, which turned out to be a very good thing!
Napless five-year olds and gingerbread houses just sitting in front of them aren’t a good combo. At all.
We each got a plate of candies (decor) and icing (our sealant).
And we got to it! I painted the house and he decorated it. It turned out quite colorful!
Some of our friends (who shall remain nameless!) had a tornado wipe through their place before construction was finished. This is the remains… Gingerbread Man is now homeless and seeking a job!
Back to our little builder, this is the finished product… Sadly, there was no warranty.
And right after the mandatory picture in front of the Christmas tree, it got tipped over onto the floor. Like I said, no warranty!
But never fear! That doesn’t mean you can’t eat it and start over, right? Right.
So we set about constructing a new house. Complete with door bell and light.
Here’s our finished masterpieces!
Hope you have a great evening!
