Gingerbread Houses, Santa Hunting & Christmas Tree Hot Chocolate

Our adventure started off with a Gingerbread house kit that we found after Halloween in Tesco for £1.50 and a large box we had from the delivery of a new kitchen appliance.

We decorated our gingerbread house during the week and used our box to make a giant gingerbread house.

IMG_4838.JPGwe added our sprinkle decorations to our hot chocolate Christmas trees…we used whipped cream that didn’t stand up very well, you could use normal squirty cream for snow covered trees and use sprinkles and strawberry laces for the decorations..

Noah decided to have his in the gingerbread house..

So, as the smaller ones enjoyed their drinks I set about hiding hanging chocolate Santas in the trees…

But we missed one which I took just for me ????
