As mentioned earlier this week, kids love to make their own creations. Today's project is a Make Your Own Gingerbread House Kit. These are simple and easy to make, and they taste delicious! Using these clever shortcuts, you can have a beautiful gingerbread house put together in minutes.
To make your gingerbread house kit, you will need:
- 1 box graham crackers
- 1 empty 2 pint milk carton
- white icing
- decorative candy (licorice, gum drops, candy canes, peppermint candies, etc.)
Place the items listed above into a gift bag and attach the following instructions:
Using the icing as glue, attach graham crackers to cover the outside of the milk carton. Use a plasic bag with one corner cut off to pipe icing along each edge of the gingerbread house. Attach candy using icing as glue to decorate your house.
You could include a bag of marshmallows to use as snow, if desired. Kids love building (and eating) these!
