If you plan on making a gingerbread house with your kids or the entire neighborhood here are some tips to make it worth your while.
- Graham Crackers! Seriously, forget the gingerbread dough and go buy some graham crackers. They're so much easier to work with.
- You can never have enough gummy bears.
- Make your own icing with powdered sugar and water. It's so much cheaper then the store bought icing and if you just add a tiny bit of water to the powdered sugar that stuff will work like cement.
- Let the kids do it their way and just sit back and watch the little architect inside of them come to life.
If you are aching for real gingerbread here is an easy homemade gingerbread recipe that I use to make cookies.
