Note to self: this plan was genius! I formed the houses and let them dry before the boys started decorating them. Then I put the ingredients in an egg carton instead of 10 different little containers. We didn't use candy; rather we used what was in the house: star-shaped cereal puffs, chocolate chips, raisins, craisins, walnuts, almonds, cheerios, goldfish crackers, marshmallows, coconut, and leftover candy canes. That way I didn't have to feel so bad when the boys inevitably started eating the decorations.
