Gingerbread Party Ideas and Crafts

With another holiday season almost upon us, I began thinking about some of the parties we have had in the past.  One of our very favorites was our Gingerbread House Party.  My youngest had her friends over and their made their own gingerbread house, decorated gingerbread cookies, and went home with a box of gingerbread goodies. 

One thing I recommend, especially if you have younger kids, is to buy a gingerbread kit that has smaller kid size houses. They were much easier to put together and finished in a timely manner. 

Another tip as a veteran party thrower is to separate all of the goodies to be used on the houses using cupcake pans. They help contain the mess and make it easier to decide what to use when you can see it all. 

A fun and easy craft that I still use every year for decoration is my Dollar Store Gingerbread Charger.

One of the favorite crafts at the party were these gingerbread craft boxes. 

We had a mini Christmas tree in the kitchen decorated with cute gingerbread ornaments and peppermint ribbon.  I still use these every Christmas as well.  

You can see the entire party and with a lot more pictures and ideas here on my original post Ideas for a Gingerbread party.

While writing this post, I saw a blast from the past.  All of my kids are now young adults, but in my post Gingerbread Tea, you can them when they were practically babies.. When they were in first grade our school would throw a Gingerbread Tea every year for the parents. I have fond memories of those teas.  If you are thinking of having an gingerbread party, you may find more inspiration there too.
