Life Size Gingerbread House
Want a life size gingerbread house for your kids this Christmas?
This is a story all about how my life got flipped…turned inside out. lol
One of my preschooler’s generous parents gave us a playhouse like this.
So it stayed in the closet for few days while we decided where and how to set it up. On the big day it hit me to assemble it inside out! I put the thing together with the cute printed part on the inside so the out side is brown, like a real gingerbread house. It was a little tricky at first but remembering that all the folds go the opposite way got easier as I went along.
My previous post was all about our flat gingerbread house display. Those pics were actually last year’s project. This house arrived just in time that we hadn’t begun assembling that yet.
The decoration phase has begun. Gum drops and peppermint candies are ready. Next week we’ll also make marble paint candy canes, and spin art lollipops for our Gingerbread House.
In the mean time, while small groups are working on their decorations others will be inside the gingerbread house with crayons coloring in the preprinted pictures.
Not entirely confident but I’m hoping the house will hold up and be reusable next year.
Next post will be after pics! Stay tuned.
