Oh MY Dog! We had quite the time on Sunday. The house smelled of gingerbread from all the baking and prepping for the party. Come party time there was also additional FOOD smells like onion dip, cheese platter, fruit salad, and chinese noodles. It was an SENSORY symphony!
The way it was set up, the child would grab a plastic tub and fill it with the candy HE or SHE wanted on their house. And there was really no limit because we had A LOT A LOT of candy.
Here is a photo of the CANDY BAR.
Once they picked out their candy they went down to the table, picked out their house and a bag of frosting. Then it was DECORATING TIME. I was the official CANDY CATCHER and hung out under the table. I didn't get very much, though. Those kids were just too good with keeping the good stuff for their houses.
I think it took about an hour - hour and a half for them to finish decorating. Then the older kids talked and the younger ones took Molly and Me our for a walk/run. They were pretty funny. I got lots of attention of which I cannot get enough.
Here are the houses all decorated. I did not get a couple of them because the humans took them home before I got my act together with the camera.
