On the 5th Day of Christmas…

Pocket Full of Posies gave to me, a gingerbread house activity for the whole family.

CIMG6509Last year Emily, our good friend Jessica, and I made home made gingerbread houses with our kids. It was so easy for the kids to do and they had so much fun. The mess on the other hand was quite a big one, but totally worth it!

These are the things you’ll need: graham crackers, lots of different candies: some we used were m&m’s, hershey kisses, suckers, pixie sticks, gumdrops, and smarties.

You’ll also need the “glue” to build the houses! Here is the recipe we used:


3 egg whites, room temp.
1 lb. powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cream of tartar

Combine all ingredients and beat for 7 to 10 minutes. Spread as desired.

I scooped frosting in several small zip lock bags and cut off a small part of one tip. The kids then used it to squeeze the frosting where they wanted to.
