Easy gingerbread houses, thanks to Martha

Filed under: Activities: Babies

One of my husband's favorite stories to tell of my crafting gone bad was when I tried to make a gingerbread house. At the time, I was working as a reporter and had to make a gingerbread house for a picture to go with a story I wrote. Let's just say that by the time I finished, my gingerbread house looked like it had been decorated by a blind person after going through a hurricane.

In fact, I have a feeling that saying it had been decorated by the blind is doing a disservice to the visually impaired. No one could decorate that horribly.

So, if you're like me and are horrible at trying to make the gingerbread, why not make it a bit easier? Martha Stewart has tips on how to make a "gingerbread" house, without the gingerbread!

Instead, use graham crackers for an easy, no-bake option. Just measure and cut and viola! You have a house! This is also good if you hate the taste of gingerbread, like I do.

So stock up on candy, whip up a batch of royal icing and go to town. Just save some leftovers for me, okay?
