I cheated this year and bought a kit of mini gingerbread houses to decorate. I love this kit, because there are 5 houses. That way each child could have their own. We thought about using these for Morgan's birthday party, but she chose to do them today instead.
I was really mean and chose to do this activity during Brenna's nap. I'm sure she would have loved to join in, but I don't have that many hands. Owen chose to play Wii instead of decorating. He can't eat these, but he could have decorated with the help of a pair of kids craft gloves.
