The beauty of doing a gingerbread house AFTER Christmas is that you buy the kit for $5 vs. $10 at Target!
And you also buy a can of green "easy frost" for $1 and some random red, green and white sprinkles for cheap! They were even in containers shaped like Christmas tree bulbs!Tervis tumblers with a lovely Green Bay Packer logo which contains champagne. You heard it here first. Kid projects and booze go hand in hand my friends!
And that squirelly lookin' gingerbread man you see above? Yep, that was me. And a lovely little mini candy cane to greet you as you cross the threshold of the door, also my idea. I find myself oddly into these projects with the kids once we get going. It's probably because I'm so creatively starved in all areas except for this blog. Oh sure, I have dreams people. Dreams of going away on art excursions and whipping out my mini travel watercolor set and thick paper to paint and ponder the landscape. Oh yes I do my friends. But that's another post.
Quite lovely work from the children if I do say!
The little guys may have eaten more than they decorated, but that is the fun!
Holy cow?! How many pictures do you think people want to see of this? Come ON already!
Love Dog + Gingy = Christmas/New Year Success!
