One of my kids favorite activities during the holidays are making (and then quickly eating) our annual gingerbread house. I always scold myself for not buying more than one since they have so much fun (and are semi-quiet) building them. As you can see from the pictures below they had a blast building theirs before the holidays.

Some of you may remember the post I did before the holidays Eat Your Sweets and Keep Your Teeth Too where I gave away an awesome gift basket of goodies to one of my readers, well the amazing lady i worked with on that campaign contacted me the other day and said she had a few gingerbread house kits left (did I mention that they’re William’s Sonoma gingerbread house kits?) and that she would like for me to offer some of them to my readers in a giveaway…well you don’t have to ask me twice! And I know that some of you are thinking…”Um Christmas is over.” and you would be correct, but what better way to spend a snow day with the kiddos than to build a gingerbread house? Sounds like the perfect distraction I mean activity for a cold, snowy winter day!williams sonoma gingerbread kit
