Every year, for the last 5 years when my friend Michele comes to visit with her daughter in January, the kids make gingerbread houses. Well, technically, they aren’t really gingerbread houses because they are made from graham crackers.
Michele and I stay up after the kids go to bed one night and construct the houses using graham crackers and royal icing. We let them harden overnight and the kids wake up excited to start decorating them.
Here are a few photos:
I taped freezer paper to the table and drew a little neighborhood. Then, I scattered candies and markers on the table and gave everyone some icing on a piece of wax paper to use for attaching their candies.
