Well. I don't know what went wrong, but, somehow our gingerbread house didn't exactly turn out well this year. lol. I have made those inexpensive little gingerbread houses with Bennett the past two years (2011 & 2012), and they've always stood up and stayed up.
But this year? Not so much. I mean, it was standing up at one point, like a house is supposed to. Here's proof.
And then... it just collapsed. lol. I don't think I let the frosting "set" long enough before we started messing with it! Plus, Bennett accidentally broke one of the roof pieces so we had to try and glue that together, too. The odds were against us from the start. But next year... I'll just use hot glue or buy a pre-made house. ;)
Didn't seem to matter at all, though. Bennett had a blast decorating his "cookies" as he called them. And I mean, the real point of doing this activity was to have a good time, and clearly, we did that. So I call it a success. Plus, kids don't care as long as they get to eat the candy along the way, right? ;)
Did you all make gingerbread houses this year? Was yours a disaster like ours was?? lol.
