tic-tac-gingerbread-house-giftThis year is the first year my son is really getting into the spirit of the holidays. I have a few fun and festive activities planned for him, including making gingerbread houses. Tic Tac® is a favorite candy of his, so I decided to put together a fun DIY Gingerbread House Kit Gift Idea! This is a fun and frugal gift idea for kids and kids at heart! Get the family together and make some fun holiday memories building your very own gingerbread houses made with Tic Tac® mints. Tic Tac® candy cane mints tastes just like a normal candy cane without the mess! Everyone will have a blast putting them together!

It also depends on if you are going to eat it or not. Don’t include the fake snow or straws if you plan on eating your gingerbread house. In our house, we do our gingerbread houses for show and bragging rights, so we use both edible and non-edible details. You can also use the white Tic Tac® mints as snow around your gingerbread house!
