Ideas 5 and 6: Home Sweet House












Tis the season for building gingerbread houses.

Admittedly, I’ve always loved this activity, though I’ve always tried to make it about the kids (at least as far as they are concerned).

Who–young or old–doesn’t love a little graham cracker house with gum drop roof tiles and sweet, frosting snow?

I think the invitation above, by Brittany from One Charming Party, is a brilliant idea! Idea #5: Why not have a gingerbread house party?–especially for a child’s birthday party during the holiday season? Invite a whole group of children and ask them to bring supplies.

But just to put a fun twist on an old tradition …









Idea #6 comes from the ridiculously creative photography studio,

Why not build a gingerbread nativity scene instead of a traditional house? Not only would memories be made by building something together, but you and your child could rehearse the true meaning of Christmas.

And anyway, regardless of what you build, it’ll be a great time around the old kitchen table.


  1. Anything made with LOVE and SWEETS and kiddo smiles just makes me SMILE!!! WE usually go to a gingerbread house baking class, have a party and then do a nativity! :):) so much fun! I can’t wait to see what YOU whip up this holiday season! xoxoxoxo
