The past several years I have decorated sugar cookies with some of my favorite little friends. It's always way fun. This year I decided to make mini graham cracker gingerbread houses to decorate. I added another set of kids to the mix this year, too. Overall, the decorating turned out to be just as much fun as cookie decorating.
I didn't have the patience to use royal frosting to "glue" the houses together, so I used a glue gun! It worked perfectly and was so quick.

|My first completed house. I thought it was kinda boring so mixed up the roofs|

|They did a great job on their houses. I had so much fun and we'll be doing this again.|
I set up another gingerbread house decorating party. I learned from the first party smaller pieces of candy and mini size cookies worked so much better and I bought icing in tubes and that worked even better. Made my prep time less time consuming and easier for the kids to use.
