I think it's time for a new lesson on what kids love to do (including myself) during the holiday months. Up next, we will learn "how to draw a gingerbread house", step by step. Now you may want to decorate your gingerbread house using shapes of your favorite candies. The ones I used are some of my favorites like Skittles, candy canes, and small jawbreakers. The traditional types of candy is gum drops, peppermints, M&M's, and other gummie candies that are easy to stick to white icing. anyways, have fun with this tut, don't get too carried away when it comes to decorating your drawing of a gingerbread house. At least these houses are edible which means you can eat them or pick from then whenever you want.
