Last night, Caleb decorated his first gingerbread house. I made sure the house was together and Caleb made the rest. I was very, very tempted to help direct where various pieces of candy should go, but I refrained and let him do it all by himself. He is very proud of his accomplishment. I learned that gingerbread houses are messy, hard to make them look like the pictures, but perfect for a 5 year old little boy.
