As you know in the post I wrote earlier this week about how to create meaningful Christmas traditions and one of our favorite family activities is making a gingerbread house. We make it from scratch and use a gingerbread mold, then together as a family we decorate it. Here is the final product!
In an effort to save money we save our Halloween and Christmas Candy to use. I know that sounds strange but we decided that since we won’t be eating the house that using stale candy would not be an issue. This worked out perfect!
Years ago I purchased gingerbread house molds to use in my classroom and now we are using them each year for our family This is a very frugal project and a family tradition and we all enjoy! One of my favorite icing recipes is this one – Homemade Whipped Cream Cheese Icing.
We also make Reindeer Food and put it out on Christmas Eve.
