Fun for $9.99

Now really, how much fun can a family of five have for $9.99.

My girlfriend said that Costco/Sam's has a great Gingerbread house kit for $9.99. She said it was easy and fun. The kit comes with everything for this price, pre-made walls, icing in a pouch, candy and cardboard matte.

We happened to shopping and I saw the little jewel. I knew it was gonna snow and it would be great to have something fun to do. It was cool to see how excited everyone was to get started.

Ginger Bread Candy

The only issue we had was all the little hands wanting to TASTE the icing. But really, who can resist eating a little icing while you work. I think it turned out well for my family's first Gingerbread House.

Great job and what a fun project! I will have to keep my eyes open for that the next time I go to Costco. That would be a perfect project next week for us.

We did one too and my kids loved it, although ours is not nearly as pretty as yours...and my girls could not keep away from the icing either.

OMG. Everyone is looking at the camera and smiling in that last shot. How did you do it? Your gingerbread house looks great too!

No way! Are those little icicles hanging down? And EVERYONE is looking at the camera and smiling at the same time? Okay, give it up. What did you bribe them with? ;)

Such a fun familiy activity! I have a gingerbread house sitting in my kitchen waiting to be assembled. I too was going to comment on the adorable icicles and EVERYONE smiling!

It's gorgeous!!

What a great job. A gingerbread house is still one project we haven't done together yet. I'm not sure we'll get to it this year but maybe next. They look so fun!

Your family photo is perfection!

Great photos! This looks like fun. Yours turned out MUCH better than the one I tried to make with my kids.

I found these at Costco - what a surprise this late in the game. I bought one for us to make on Christmas day. Thanks for the great idea! Heather

We have one of these we haven't used yet! Who cares that it's after Christmas...this makes me want to still do it!
