We are planning on putting together our gingerbread house tonight and Sweet Girl has been eyeing the box for a few days. She is anxiously waiting to build it and asks about one-zillion times a day if we can "do it now"! To try to appease her until this evening I put together a little cardboard gingerbread house for her to color, decorate and play with. It actually turned out to be a lot of fun (and a lot less messy)!
I used one of the random boxes we had in our recycling bin. I basically just filled a box inside out and cut a little door.
Then I used two other boxes and shaped them into a point for a roof.
Sweet Girl colored it with markers.
And then added some "gumdrop" stickers and windows.
I pulled out our stash of Christmas stickers which actually included a lot of candy stickers.
Then we added two little candy canes made from pipe cleaners.
And a gingerbread man....
Oh...and even the princess got a chance to visit the gingerbread house. What gingerbread house is complete without princesses??
