Let's talk Gingerbread Houses today!
Tis the season for family-friendly activities and building a gingerbread house is a time-honored tradition for so many families.
Not to mention, it's a SUPER fun lesson in engineering principles for kids! Testing out how to balance the walls, construct a roof and put together a fun little structure is the perfect intro to some of those basic physics principles.
And while I love all the building, learning & family connecting -- I'm not a fan of all the sugar icing and candy add-ons when the kids are already coming home telling me about those 'surprise' cookie and candy treats at school.
But there has to be a healthier option for these adorable little abodes, right?
YES! We found some amazing edibel items to use as you construct a gingerbread house that's also a super healthy snack option too!
