Gingerbread House

For one of Finley’s advent activities we decided we would build a gingerbread house. I should have known this wasn’t going to turn out to be a magical experience. Don’t get me wrong it was fun, but very messy.

I should have pre-built the house, but forgot so Finley was upset he couldn’t decorate right away. Once it was built:

Finley just wanted to eat it. When it was time to decorate I put everything out on the table. Finley said, ” oh snacks, but what will we decorate the house with?”


He spent a majority of the time licking, tasting and eating the house and it’s decorations.


Finley had mostly finished the house when the wall came down.

Then I tried to fix it.

Gingerbread Houses and Toddlers don’t go well together. It was a fun experience and I have many fond memories. Finley definitely has a sweet tooth.
