Two Custom (Edible) Homes Available
We spent yesterday afternoon at our church helping to set up for building Graham Cracker houses. Most people call them gingerbread houses, but we always use Graham Crackers, so....
One of the ladies in the church built 30 houses for the kids to decorate. My wife and I spent time separating at least 10 different types of candy (building material) decorations into 10-12 bowls on five different tables.
Each child received their own can of frosting to start the process. (We took the frosting and microwaved it for about 15 seconds to make it easier to spread.) There was a lot of dip, spread, and then a giant lick of the knife!
Both of my boys built a house. My oldest started early to 'test the process' for the younger kids. He wanted to do it, but didn't want to admit it. Once it was determined he was going decorate a house his best friend piped up that he wanted to do it, too.
Here you have the front door with wreath, red picket fence and mailbox, plus the owner and his pet bear to the right. On the left side is a Christmas Tree with a lights and star on top.
A little better view of the outside tree. Note the swimming pool and deck in the second picture. He even got his name written on the roof using pretzels.
The youngest kids house. The Gingerbread people on the roof are still hanging decorations and the two in front are passing the decorations up. (Note the gummy bear light in one's hand.)
Back of the house with a nice pretzel deck (still under construction), candy cane awning and gummy window. Oh, and don't miss the teddy bear wall! Don't know if you can see it in the picture, but he was very proud of it and mentioned it several times.
All the kids had a blast and I ate far too many decorations for my own good!
