I was so happy that the house was fully assembled. Evan got so bored while I was putting the Halloween one together and walked out of the room. The assembled kit comes with everything shown below(house, candy, icing mix, bag, and tip). The icing is really easy to make, just use the mix and some water.
We did the top of the house first. We put Santa on and made a "chimney" around him. Evan kept adding things when I wasn't looking, but he had an absolute blast.
My husband was working late when we made this, so I got into decorating and forgot to keep taking pictures. Here it is almost done.
I added some drops of icing along the edges of the top to make it look like snow...Evan kept going behind me and licking the icing off.
I decorated the front and then let Evan have at it. He couldn't wait to put the pieces of candy where he wanted. He wanted the lights to go on the top, but they kept falling over. It would have been easier if we would have used the gumdrops.
The best part of doing these houses is watching Evan at work. He has so much fun doing it and having another "project" to do together creates more bonding time. I personally think he did an awesome job. Here is our final product - the reindeer fell down.
