Nothing like keeping the kids busy on a snow day, right? There are many things you could do but THIS is the most fun...and it's not as messy as you think!

You can buy an already put together gingerbread house at the local stores for around $7. I have had our gingerbread house on the counter for 2 weeks and the family kept asking me when they were going to decorate it. Leverage is a wonderous thing during Christmas!

Tip #1: Put a piece of newspaper on the table and decorate away!

Tip #2: if you have more than 1 child, separate the candy pieces that come inside the box evenly. If you can't make it even, eat the odd! Trust me, less fighting that way AND you get candy!

See what creation YOUR kids will make on a snow day!
