When Wal-Mart marked the Wilton Gingerbread House kits down to $1.50 I bought up several. It's an easy, quick thing to make for the holidays and the kids love decorating them. The best part? The ones I bought were assembled (no waiting for wall icing to dry) and the icing was in a bag, ready to use (no mixing!). Could it get any easier?
I saved Halloween colorful candy and other random candy in a big ziplock and pull it out for these moments. This time around we divided up the green and red candy it came with and just used the green.
Then we added some green of our own and some rainbow candy we found as well. We even made a pot of gold out of a mini Reese's and some nerds.
I don't claim to be talented enough with icing tips to make this fancy or beautiful AT. ALL. But, it sure is a fun way to fill an afternoon and have some decor for the holidays. And we never eat ours so I don't care that the candy and the house are old.
