Cracker Creations

We had a lot of fun decorating graham cracker houses with the kids yesterday and I think it is destined to become a holiday tradition. Each child was thrilled to take their house home and helpless to keep himself from taking a nibble or two.

They all turned out different even though all the bags of candy were basically the same.

Had it been up to some of these little ones, the houses would have been bare and the candy consumed.

It's a good thing there were plenty of extra goodies to nibble on.

Some of the candy had already been sampled by the time it got onto the plate. Lucas just couldn't resist the marshmallow peep tree.

 We even had Teddy Grahams to live in our houses and play in our yards. They're the perfect size for mini graham cracker houses!

And I had to get in on the fun too, of course.

There. That's two posts for today and it's not even 10 am.


  1. Why your little angels have created an entire village. These are so adorable, I wish my little boys lived close enough for us to make houses. have brought a lot of joy to those kids.

    1. Every once in a while we find something cool to do. It doesn't take very long once the houses are assembled. I bet you could do it with your little boys sometime. :0)

  2. Cute!
    I must remember these, for when Miss V is older♥
    Looks like a crappy weekend coming up....

    Lots to do!!!
    Linda :o)

    1. Little Miss V will love this when she is a little bit older. Aubrey is just a year older than Vivian and she thought it was great. Maybe V can do it next year.
      Yes, it's going to be a sloppy mess out there this weekend.

  3. Hey, those turned out just great! I love that baking and you can start right in on the building!

    1. So much easier whether it's kids or adults!
      Tomorrow I'll show you what James and Hannah are working on.

  4. Looks like it was loads of fun! I love it!

    1. Thanks! You will love the farm James and Hannah are working too. It's really cool, but they aren't quite finished yet.
