Advent Calendar Activity :: Day 11

Make a gingerbread house.

I’m not going to lie to you, I always kind of dread this one. Putting these things together in the past has sometimes been tricky business. But not this year! Trader Joe’s to the rescue! TJ’s kit rocks hard, y’all! First of all, they come with these sweet little figures:

Little Buddha loves stuff like that.

But the best is that TJ’s makes the kit super-easy to go together. It’s an A-frame style house, and it hangs together so much better than the more elaborate kits we’ve done in the past. We got it put together pretty quickly. After it dried, the babysitter helped the boys decorate it.

Pretty cute!
