Keep the Kids Busy this Christmas with a Gingerbread House Kit

Gingerbread House Kits

If you’re looking for an at home holiday activity for the kids or a gift with a difference, it’s hard to go past a gingerbread house kit. They’re fun to build and decorate, but not all kits are created equal, as mother of four Tina Pearce discovered.

Tina wanted to start a Christmas tradition for her family and loved the idea of building a gingerbread house with the kids. The first year she tried to build it from scratch. It took forever and the result resembled the leaning tower of Pisa. The family had a new addition in year two, so to keep things simple, the decision was made to get a kit from the supermarket. The pieces were joined by melting them in hot oil which was clearly not a job for little ones, so this was left to Dad. Several burnt fingers later and the kids had added some colourful words to their vocabulary. In year three they went for an upmarket kit – or so they thought. This one had pre-made icing which was fiddly to work with and tasted horrible.

Tina was surprised that it was so difficult to find a great tasting kit at the right price.

“I looked at every kit on the market and didn’t like any of them. They were either too expensive, or didn’t come with lollies or weren’t safe for kids to make or tasted like cardboard”, said Tina.

So she decided to do something about it. Tina scoured the world to find the best tasting, best value, gingerbread house kit to share with other Australian families. The kit she chose comes from Canada and everything is supplied including luscious lollies, tasty gingerbread pieces, icing mix and a piping bag with star tip. The price is just $39.95 including delivery Australia-wide. Generous discounts apply when buying 2 or more.
