    Thankyou for the clarification on this. I'm afraid my cookery skills are not up to much :oops:
    Another member asked me and I just wanted to make sure on the rules, hopefully she will enter ;)

    You don't have to cook or bake - can use a kit or graham crackers. And only part of the entry has to be edible. Give it a try [​IMG]

    Hey, I could loan you my cat, he is helping me bake. LOL

    Graham Cracker Warning:


    A tip for those using Graham Crackers - attach them to cardboard, a milk carton or something to give them some strength.

    Working on my GB house, made a chicken ramp our of a graham cracker and a slight pressure broke it [​IMG].
    But got it fixed with some "engineering"..[​IMG]

    I bet he is better than me at baking :gig

    Thankyou for the offer of his help :highfive:

    I've seen the kits, will have a double check if they have any left next time I go grocery shopping. This time of year people are just panic buying :barnie
    I wouldn't mind but the shops are only closed Christmas Day!!

    The contest doesn't end until the 31st. You will see those kits on the clearance tables after Christmas for a bargain price, just keep your eyes open.

    My five year old and I made a gingerbread house today (from a kit). Obviously not winning any prizes, but we had fun[​IMG]

    Two second after the house was finished [​IMG]. He had a lot of fun. It has been raining non stop this week, so this gave us a good indoor activitie.

    I guess I should add, he pretended the little glob of frosting by the door was a duck nest (we have two ducks) with two blue and one purple duck egg. Like I said, this was just for fun.

    I may need to do that with my 4 year old this week... that's an awesome idea and looks like tons of fun.
