Vacation Bible School sneaked up on me this year and for the first time in a very long time I wasn't exhausted before day one. After four years of coordinating the event at our local church and many more as craft girl and designated decorator, I finally handed the reins to somebody, anybody, else. I always have a blast at Vacation Bible School and consistently have been blessed by doing what I did, but it was finally time to pass along those VBS blessings to someone else.
Even with a kit in hand, many of you can attest that building a gingerbread house can be a frustrating and tear evoking task, especially when the kids are eagerly waiting to adorn it with editable windows and sugar-covered roofs. Through the years (and trial and error) I came up with a tear-free solution to building our beautiful brown baked houses, and it all comes down to planning.
