The Days of Christmas: Day 9

Read Luke 2:8-11—Candy canes, remind us of the shepherds' crook and The Savior, who is “The Good Shepherd” (include mini candy canes)
Activity: Decorating a Gingerbread House

This is definitely a family favorite! The kids love to decorate with candy especially since they get to eat it when we are all through. I don't know how you feel but I am usually trying to pinch pennies wherever I can. When it comes to the gingerbread houses though I splurge unless I'm using graham crackers, I think it is totally worth buying the kit! Gingerbread takes forever, is never the right thickness, all the measuring to make sure it all workout. I did that in the past but gave up when I came across the kits. No more baking for me!!! Well, as far as gingerbread is concerned. I know a little lazy but I would much rather spend the time with the kids decorating, eating candy and laughing than the time it takes to make the darn thing on my own.
