Keep the party small and manageable. Good rule of thumb: child’s age = number of guests. Schedule party when kids are fresh and have some patience – avoid nighttime for the younger set.
Ask guests to wear festive hats and headbands.
Set up a long “decorating” table covered with a plastic tablecloth.
Prepare a workspace for each child that includes: apron, gingerbread house, icing and a variety of holiday candies. (Tip: fill small paper cups halfway with holiday candies.)
We love these limited edition Gingerbread M&M’s for decorating gingerbread houses. How fun!
Set up a hand washing station for quick clean-up before and after decorating. Set the mood with fun holiday music.

Take pictures of each child with their masterpiece.
Save small cardboard boxes for easy transport of gingerbread houses home.
Bottled water cardboard “trays” with sides work great too.
If the kids are really young, you may opt to decorate large gingerbread boys and girls instead of a whole gingerbread house.
