Valentine gingerbread houses

Our love of gingerbread house decorating has gotten to the point that as soon as one holiday season ends, the boys are asking to make the next.

I felt like I was adequately prepared for the sugar rush (and crash) that goes along with "gingerbread" house decorating this afternoon.

I'm a huge cheating cheater that uses graham crackers and hot glue.

It's fast.

It works.

No one wants to eat candy and frosting manhandled by preschoolers, anyway. :)

  1. Such a fabulous idea! I know what we're doing next week. Thanks!

  2. I love this!! My boys would love it but without the hot glue because they'll want to eat their creations.

  3. They are adorable! I wish we had Graham crackers, it looks so easy!

  4. You show me these cutie ideas and then I have to do them! LOVE.
    My kids are going to love a girl named Cheryl and her pretty cool blog ;)

  5. I really love that you do these for every holiday. The minute I saw all of the pink candy I knew my girls would love to do this. Thanks for the inspiration :)

  6. I love this idea and the colors are so pretty.

  7. We made these on Friday, and I posted some pics today. The girls loved it! Thanks, Cheryl :)


Thanks for visiting!
