Crafts for the Holidays Challenge Day 2: Build a House
Gingerbread houses are a classic holiday craft! Since I didn't have gingerbread in my house, we made a graham cracker house instead. It was a good substitution and easy to work with.
Gingerbread or graham crackers
A piece of cardboard
I started by putting icing on the piece of cardboard as my foundation (I wanted to make sure the sides stayed up so I used a small tissue box and attached the sides to that). After sides were on we made the roof.
Once the house was standing my 3 year old and 18 month old took turns decorating the house. This craft is great because kids of all ages can get involved!
Did you ever make gingerbread houses as a kid? Is it something that you usually do with your kids around the holidays?
