House Party

We attended our first ever gingerbread house making party this past weekend. We walked in to a huge table FULL of candy and crackers and prebuilt houses. It was a child's fantasy. (the photo below only shows about 1/8 of what was there.) And I can just about bet that no kiddo there didn't have some sort of sugar rush/ crash that night. I know mine did. I thought this was a super clever idea. The kids LOVED it. Though, I do have to say trying to stick graham crackers to cardboard with honey, was kind of disastrous. Frosting sticks just a bit better. Live and learn.
(I apologize in advance for the not so great photos....not much I could do with artificial lighting... )

This was all that mine got accomplished before being distracted.....

And I know this sounds like a mom and kiddo kind of party, but the dad's came too. They played poker while we crafted!
