A fun craft for the kids - making a gingerbread house

I have a great idea for anyone with little kids. If you live in a state with Trader Joes, think about picking up a Gingerbread House. The cost is about $7, and is a great way to spend time putting it together.

The most complicated part is the is whipping up the egg white, which if you do by hand like I did, takes about 10 minutes.  The Gingerbread house is from German and has that precision quality feel.  The only thing I would add, is more candy: chocolate M&M's, gummy bears, etc.  Oh yeah, you also will need a way to spread the frosting. I used a ziplock baggy with a small hole cut in the corner to apply it to the edges.

Here is a picture showing the finished product and a link from Amazon if you cannot find it at Trader Joes:
