My little prince of 4 years heard so much about gingerbread houses from TV, school, friends, etc and he wanted to decorate one this year. He was very insistent and since no one in the house likes gingerbread cookies, I decided to build a gingerbread house with sugar cookies dough. It was quite sturdy and it really made my prince and princess's day. My little prince commented that it looks like the witch house he watched at Super Why - Hansel and Gretel!!! As my 2 precious are still young, I did not want to spend the rest of the day cleaning up my carpets. So, I decided to use a tray....ha!ha!....lazy mummy, ain't I.
Here's a photo where my 2 precious started decorating the house. As you can see, I did not buy much decorations. I only used what's in the house ~ M&Ms, Candy Canes and Wafer Rolls.
Here's another photo where my 2 precious started eating the M&Ms and wafer rolls and left the house unattended...ha!ha!
Here's another photo where my 2 precious decided that they have finished decorating the house and enough is enough...ha!ha!
I must say that I am really happy that the sugar cookies dough turned out quite sturdy and seeing my 2 kiddos happy faces really worth it (spending so much time in the kitchen baking the walls, roof, assembling the house, icing the house, etc). One of my buddies commented that its so plain looking, nothing to shout about, etc...well, I really don't care coz this is just something for my 2 precious to play with and experience the whole process of decorating the gingerbread house. Its pretty magical watching my 2 kiddos at work.. :)
Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year Everyone!!!
