These are the pieces to make miniature gingerbread houses. I have made 10 set because I have 3 nieces and 1 nephew who are coming tomorrow to build their own gingerbread houses! I used to do this many years ago when I was a kindergarten teacher and then through my two sons’ formative years. We always had fun and a few weeks ago, my younger son and I were reminiscing about the good times we had with this activity that we decided to do it for my nieces and nephew. There is a hick and it was a BIG one. One of my nieces is allergic to gluten AND nuts! :(…and I wanted to include her so these houses are very expensive. I went out and got all the ingredients to make gluten/nut free gingerbread houses. My niece is very happy to be included in a fun project like this. I got together with her mother and we have scads of treats to decorate the houses! I will post pictures after the event.
I am so tired right now. I started baking at 3:00…and I have the last of the cookies in the oven, made all the house parts and then made different forms of cookies. All ready for decorating tomorrow!
Oh and I will leave you with the other project that is taking up time and NOT letting me decorate :(…but 🙂 happy that it is done:
The house is full of dust! Ah renos! I may be able to decorate by Friday…..we’ll see.
