Gingerbread House Kits: A Perfect Holiday Activity for the Whole Family

There are so many different traditions that come with the Christmas and Hanukkah season. The other day we wrote about one of them, Advent Calendars, and how quickly they sell out each year.

Another holiday favorite that everyone in the family can take part in is the annual construction of a gingerbread house. This tradition dates back to Germany in the early 1800s when very elaborate gingerbread house displays were created, many of which adorned with gold leaf.

Still today, families, businesses, and tourist destinations around the globe continue to keep this tradition alive. Many holiday displays in commercial establishments take weeks to put together and attract hundreds of visitors.

Days are spent backing gingerbread sheets for the walls of the homes and gingerbread “shingles” for the roof. Countless hours are then spent “gluing” the pieces together using icing before artisans begin decorating the exterior.

It’s a lot of work to put together a large gingerbread house display and we’re here to give you a big high-five if you’re ready to whip up a big batch of gingerbread and all the other components from scratch.

But if you’re looking for a simpler alternative that doesn’t involve baking, you’ve come to the right place! Each year we work with our candy suppliers to bring you new and unique gingerbread house kits that contain pre-baked gingerbread and all the “tools” you need to begin construction – and this year is no different!

Like our Advent Calendars, gingerbread house kits are one of those items that sell out quickly, so we encourage you to order early to avoid disappointment as we get closer to the holiday.

Whether crafting a gingerbread house is something you do every year, or you’re ready to start a new tradition, we can’t think of a better holiday activity that brings the entire family together. In fact, our gingerbread house kits are perfect for giving to each family member so they can create their own and you can use them in one large display!

Here are just a few of the gingerbread house kits we have available:

Santa’s Workshop Gingerbread Kit
There’s a magical place way up at the North Pole where Santa’s elves work all year round creating all the toys and gadgets that are loaded in his sleigh for that Christmas Eve trip around the world. This gingerbread house kit features characters from the holiday classic, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, working at Santa’s workshop!

M&M’s Gingerbread Stadium Kit
If you have sports fans in your family, forget a gingerbread house… pick up one of these gingerbread stadiums instead! A fun and unique take from M&M’s that will certainly make for a unique addition to your holiday display.

Polar Express Chocolate Cookie Kit
