Now here is a nifty idea! While perusing our local Lens Mill Store the other day, I came across Gingerbread House Kits on sale for $5.99, so I bought one to make a Halloween House with the kids! What a fun project to do with children. Of course, normally one waits until the Christmas season to do this type of craft, but I figured it would be something fun to work on now, so we made it in a Halloween theme!
It was very easy to do, just by following the step-by-step instructions provided with the kit, and then by buying some additional candies in a Halloween theme, we made our own little “Hansel and Grettel” house, complete with a Jack-o’-Lantern waiting by the door!
Liam enjoyed decorating the cookie shapes that came with the house, and also eating as he worked!
What a great seasonal, fun craft! All in all it took about 2 hours to complete. I plan to go back and buy another kit to make one for Christmas as well! $5.99 for a couple of hours entertainment? You just can’t go wrong with that!
