Gingerbread Houses For Little Kids
I helped in Sadie's kindergarten class this morning because they were making gingerbread houses before their winter break. After today she doesn't go back to school until Jan 4th. We're all pretty excited to have her home during these fun holidays. Especially with the nice warm weather we're getting.
Anyway, these gingerbread houses were just so clever & perfect for little kids that I have to share. The teacher pre-made the little houses. She hot glued graham cracker pieces onto an empty milk box (you know the little ones they get with their cafeteria lunches). Then she hot glued the house onto the paper plate. That way the houses wouldn't fall over or collapse while they spread on frosting & put on all the candy pieces. Also with the house glued to the plate, they could carry their houses all by themselves a little more securely.
