Every year, we purchase a couple of gingerbread house kit. Typically, two houses are built
and the children sharing construction and decoration duties.
This year, I found a kit for a gingerbread house village with four houses.
Since each child would then be able to build their own house, it was perfect.
They spent an hour or so of Christmas afternoon creating these.
And, today, on New Year's Day, they will eat them!
For Christmas, my oldest daughter got a soap making kit.
She spent an afternoon making a few bars from it.
Additionally, we made snowflakes from these patterns
and others like those pictured above for this school.
