The grandchildren will be coming here and I am looking for a simple and easy gingerbread house for them to make. Do you have any ideas, on which one would be best?I have seen a few that would be hard for the younger children.

I wouldn't even try it myself. My sister is an absolute master at making them and I would just be embarrassed by my efforts, I'm sure. I have never been around when she made hers. She won't let anyone be around.... it is an art form for her and she needs her space and time to do it. I know she does very imaginative things with hers like melts hard candies of different colors to use as stain glass windows. Stunning!

It sounds like she could give the advice and tips needed. I wish she could be here to guide me through or this may come out looking mighty strange lol

First you opne the box making sure everything is there. Then you lay the pieces out on the work table. Then...... Dang I always eat the gingerbread at this point. So I am at a loss as to the following steps. Sorry. I have never made one in all my years actually. But I do love Gingerbread cookies. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~
