The Kindergarten clases in our K-12 school has a "Candyhouse Day" in
November, during Grandparents' Day visits. They set up tables in the
cafeteria and I think the Grandparents help the (100 or so ) students
decorate their houses for the Holidays.
I think they begin with milk cartons as the base then with cake icing add
graham crackers for the walls, and trim with other goodies--M & M's,
peppermint canes, jelly beans, gum balls, whatever, etc. Yummy!!!!!
