Manischewitz Chanukah House!

Hi Neighbors!

I received a Chanukah House kit from Manischewitz.  They are actually having a contest for decorating a Chanukah House.  It ends December 15th, so be sure to hurry up and enter!

I allowed my two daughters to make and decorate the house.  They really had quite a bit of fun.  So, yes an adult might make it look more neat, but they definitely could not have more fun than these two did.

They went out to our back deck to one of our picnic tables to do their creating.  The kit comes with pre-formed walls and roof pieces.  You have to ice them together and then decorate.  They used a cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil for their base.  (I think they ate as much icing as they put on!)

First the walls and roof are erected.  They are joined with icing.  Ours had a few cracks and broken pieces from shipping, but I think they did pretty good!

Oh!  Don't forget the chimney!

See what I mean about licking fingers!

Then the real decorating started.  Blue icing, candy pieces, doors, windows, oh my!

 Look here!  The door is on, windows in place and the roof is almost decorated.

Placing the last few pieces!

All done!  It looks quite tasty!

Unfortunately, they were working outside and it was a little warm!  The wall fell in and the roof toppled.

The girls really enjoyed this!  Be sure and pick one up.  You can enter the competition, or just let the children have some fun!
