One is never too old to enjoy some holiday fun of building and decorating gingerbread houses, which is what my son and I did today. WalMart now offers a large variety of gingerbread houses and cookies to decorate. Just in the past couple of years, the many choices of gingerbread houses have exploded onto the scene.
This year, I bought Disney and Hello Kitty-themed gingerbread houses at WalMart, made by Brand Castle at BrandCastle.com in Bedford Heights, Ohio. They were a little more pricey than the usual style, but for $3 more each, it was worth it. The cookies not only came with frosting and candies, but also cardboard and plastic platforms. The cookies were extremely well-packaged, and none of them were broken upon opening the boxes.
While we never create and/or decorate gingerbread houses that look nearly as nice as what the pictures on the boxes show, we always have fun. And, another great thing about building and decorating gingerbread houses is that they can also be eaten – yet an additional way to enjoy our work! Happy holidays!
