Day 332. Gingerville.

It started a few years ago, to decorate a gingerbread house for Christmas.  I found a little kit at WalMart, that made it quite fool-proof.  I figured the boys would enjoy it.  It has since become a necessity at just about every holiday.  Christmas.  Easter.  Halloween.  Who knew they made so many ginger-versions???  Anyway, this year, KS3 spotted this entire, little town.  It was a bit more complex than I'd anticipated, in that the pieces were smaller, so they were harder to work with.  BUT, we made it happen.  We are certainly no masters of the art, but the kids really enjoy putting them together and showing off their creativity.... and eating the candy while they're decorating.  Sheesh.  I let them have free reign with most of it.  I think it's a great way to occupy an afternoon during Christmas break, and let their imaginations flow.
