Want to have a fun gingerbread party with your kids?

Then you will need the following:

1 Pre-made gingerbread house (Purchased at Michael’s, or Target)

1 box of Frosted Mini Wheat cereal

1 bag of square pretzels

Variety of candy (M&M’s, Twizzlers, gumdrops, Mike & Ike’s, Hershey Kisses, small candy canes, white chocolate chips, Smarties, Spearmint leaves, Tootsie Rolls, Kit Kat bars)

Store bought Vanilla Frosting

Pepperidge Farm Gingerbread Family Cookies

Silver Cake boards (Purchased at Michael’s)

Large clear basket bags, gift tags & ribbon (Purchased at Michaels)

Plastic clear cups

Plastic knives


1.) Glue down each house with icing, & let dry for a half hour.

2.) Cover the table with a tablecloth, this makes it easy to clean up.

3.) Next fill the plastic cups with candy for each child.

4.) Have the frosting & knives out at each place setting.

5.) After the children decorate their houses, let them dry for an hour.

6.) Next place each house in a bag, label each tag, then tie with a ribbon.

Enjoy a great day with your children, & don’t open until Christmas!

This tradition we do every year in our home, & our children look forward to sharing it with their family on Christmas night every year!

Take it from a Mom Who Knows!
