Gingerbread Picassos

Yes, my boys are little Picassos. And their medium of choice – gingerbread. Mmmm… a tasty and sturdy option!

Another fun family activity completed!

BEFORE:

Dean helped me assemble the frames – this was not a toddler friendly activity – as much as their little hands wanted to help and touch everything.  After naptime (3 hours later) they’d dried hard and we were ready for the decorations!

I used the Wilton’s kit from Michael’s and it was perfect because it came with four houses so each kid got to decorate two. Mom handled the icing and then the boys went to work on prettying them up:

I’d definitely do this craft again with the kids, especially because as they get older I think they’ll be able to take over the icing duties too!
