Every year for Christmas we make some kind of a gingerbread house, either from scratch or from a kit. It doesn’t matter, we just love the simplicity and charm of this beloved tradition, not to mention the smell that fills our house.
One year, the kids went to a gingerbread house building party and came home to present me with a farmhouse and homestead, complete with a tiny vegetable garden and fencing. It was a proud moment for my mama heart!
It’s always fun. That is,
. . . . UNTIL the dog finds it!!!
It has officially become a tradition for her, as well, because it happens every year now. We build the house, said dog annihilates it. She must think its really all done just for her.
We even try to hide it, but inevitably someone forgets and moves it too close to the counter’s edge.
This brings me to the point of this post. What if we could make a gingerbread house that the dog wouldn’t want to eat?
What if we could build it so it could be re-used each year??
Enter the Clay Gingerbread House!

So, so sweet and not too difficult.
The best part is that you don’t have to start from scratch each year. You can add on and build your own little gingerbread house village, if you want.
AND, I promise you, the dog won’t want to eat this one!!
