Aldi's has gingerbread house kits for $6.99 this week. Ds put one together from Aldi's last year and he had so much fun. It comes with the gingerbread pieces, a plastic tray that makes putting the pieces together really easy, royal icing and candy. We haven't made it yet this year, probably will Saturday or Sunday. Last time there was more than enough candy and icing for everything. Last year it was $4.99. I can't remember if it was on clearance after Christmas or if prices have just gone up that much. I looked at other places and didn't see one less than $10 and most were $12 or more.
I tried making one from a recipe when I was a kid and it was a massive failure.
