December 12th is National Gingerbread House Day.
Have you ever made one? This was a tradition with my kids for many years. You can take the easy route and buy a kit, or you can actually go hardcore and make from scratch.
Another easy method is to skip the gingerbread and make them out of graham crackers and ice cream cones. This is a great thing to do with a larger group of kids–SO fun! We did it every year at the kid’s school and had a ball. Every one brought in their favorite candy to decorate with.
