After the turkey had been put away, we got out the crafts. The adults made ornaments for the tree, but the kids project, became far more interesting.
My sister in law had purchased ginger bread house molds, and pre cooked all the house pieces for the kids to build with. Complete with walls, a door, a roof, a man, and a tree.
Construction immediatly went south when the piping bag we had broke open. I put the "cement" into place using the side of the bag. also the gingerbread was so good and fresh, that it started to buckle before the cement was dry or the house was fully built.
