Hosting a Gingerbread House Decorating Party is a delightful way to embrace the holiday spirit and get creative with friends and family. To make it extra easy, consider using pre-made gingerbread houses which include pre-made icing packs for easy assembly. As your guests transform these gingerbread houses into sugary masterpieces, make sure to have a variety of colorful candies on hand. Your guests will love to have several choices, from gumdrops to festive sprinkles.
To keep the fun going, provide gingerbread house-themed coloring sheets and sticker sheets for the little ones to enjoy between decorating sessions. For a delicious snack, serve some gingerbread men cookies and hot chocolate. It’s a great way to refuel during the gingerbread house decorating.
As the kids grow into teenagers, our gingerbread house decorating parties continue to be a tradition. To amp up the fun for teens at your gingerbread house decorating party, consider turning it into a friendly competition! Divide them into teams and assign judges to evaluate each gingerbread house. Consider categories based on creativity, design, and overall presentation. You can also offer prizes for categories like “Most Whimsical,” “Best Use of Candy,”. Teens love a bit of friendly rivalry, and this contest will add some extra excitement to the festivities. With prizes on the line, your gingerbread house decorating party will become a fun event for older kids and teens.
