Make a Miniature Gingerbread House
Around the holidays, you’ll start to see those scrumptious-looking gingerbread house kits for sale. Kids are irresistibly attracted, and who can blame them? But if you’d rather keep things to a more manageable scale - and you want to sneak in some academic skills while you’re at it - try this adorable craft. It works great for one child at a time, and even better for a small group who’ll enjoy creating a village of sweet fun.
What You Need:
- 8 oz. milk carton (like the kind kids get in school lunches), empty, clean, and dry
- Can of cake frosting
- Blunt knife
- Graham crackers
- Spray can with decorator tips
- Assortment of candy…of course!
