DIY Valentines Day Gingerbread Treats

Check out this Gingerbread Love Cottage! A great way to save money on treats and do a fun activity on Valentine’s day. Buy a gingerbread man, house, or train on sale after Christmas and turn it into a Valentine’s day gingerbread treats. I found each of these for 75% off after Christmas. I also found some leftover red icing that was very cheap. You can also look for Christmas candy that isn’t too Christmas-y to use for this activity or you can add in some Valentine’s candy.  My kids decorated all of these for Valentines day.

Gingerbread man

My daughter really had fun decorating our gingerbread man. It was probably the easiest as there was nothing to put together like with the train and house.

The gingerbread train took a little more time to put together, but once it was dry, it was fun decorating.

I have to admit, by the time my kids decorated the gingerbread house, they were tired of it. I would suggest each child only decorate one house, train, or gingerbread man each season. 🙂
