Cute Gingerbread Houses!

I spent the morning in Greta’s classroom helping the kids make gingerbread houses.  Each child brought in one kind of  candy to share so there was a nice assortment for their houses!    I peeked in on Ricky’s classroom which is right next to Greta’s and was able to get some pictures of Ricky too!  Graham cracker houses are just the perfect size for kids to make.  We usually do those at home so each of my 5 kids can have their own but didn’t get around to it this year.

We did that for Piper's birthday a week ago. The kiddos were a little young - not too much candy made it on to the houses!
