The boys love to put together a gingerbread house every Christmas season. I'm just glad they make the kits you can get for $5. I did pick up some extra candy to decorate with since this year there are four boys who are all very interested in getting in their fair share of decorating.
Here they are busy at work. There was a little frustration as eight hands wanted to work at the same time. They are learning compromise and kindness. Especially since I wouldn't let anyone quit!
They made it through, and were asking to eat it as soon as it was done, but no eating until Christmas Eve!
We added a small bag of M&Ms, some gummy Life Savers, and a pack of tic tacs. Seemed about right.
