HAPPY Holidays — Make a Ginger Bread House Kit (Neighbor Gift Idea)

Hello Tatertots & Jello Friends!

This is Desirée from The 36th AVENUE.

I’m so happy to be back here today and share with you our Ginger Bread House Kit.

Every year as part of our Christmas tradition we love to make

Homemade Ginger Bread and of course build with it our Ginger Bread Christmas Village.

This year we made an extra house to give to one of our neighbors as a building kit.

It was really simple to put the kit together.

First make your ginger bread, cut and bake the houses.

{ I am sharing the recipe and templates for the small house on my blog The 36th AVENUE today}

Making the houses is our favorite part!

After your house has cooled down hold it together using baker’s twine.

Then put a bunch of candy to decorate the house inside of a clear treat bag.

You can find the bags over at Wal-Mart and Craft Stores.

Assemble the kit putting the house and the candy inside of a box and add

a little tag or Christmas Card to it. You can even add the recipe for the Ginger Bread

to the kit so your neighbors, family and friends can have it as well.

{ You can print the recipe here. }

Such a simple and cute way to wish a Merry Christmas to those you love!

I love Christmas!

Before I go I want to thank my dear friend Jen for letting me hang out with you

fabulous Tatertots & Jello readers today.

I want to wish you all a beautiful Christmas as we celebrate this wonderful Holiday Season.

  1. […] 5.  Cookies are being baked.  I got the idea to use my little blueberry boxes from the farmer’s market as small cookie boxes for people like our AWANA leaders, our piano teacher, etc. from Pinterest.  You can see the original here. […]
