Do & Redo Gingerbread House

I saw this post by Frugal Fun For Boys & Girls and I was so excited to try it out. In fact,  I invited friends over the same day & made a quick trip to the craft store. 

After letting A help pick out items to decorate the house with,  we headed back home to get it ready. 

It was very easy following the directions for building the house. A was excited to help me measure & draw the lines on the cardboard. Then A spent a lot of time cutting extra pieces of cardboard. 

The hot glue was super easy & sturdy for the house.  (Much easier than frosting!).  Then I added velcro to the house & then to the different decorating items. 

A  and her friend had a blast decorating their houses.  And they even redecorated it a few times during the making process! 

SKILLS: Independence, Decisions, Fine Motor, Measuring, Cutting, Working Together
