Do Your Gingerbread Houses Fall Apart? Try This Simple Holiday Hack! by Jan Mostrom

When my girls were little, we loved making our annual gingerbread houses. Now, we invite friends with small kids so we can continue the tradition with them. One of the things we would struggle with is getting the structure of the house to stay together with the frosting. I found a way to make it easy! Want to know the secret?

Pre-assemble the houses with hot glue! It takes only minutes, and it's so simple. Then, kids can focus on decorating and, of course, eating all the candy!
