Ready to get into the holiday spirit? Make this mini-gingerbread house with your children or students! Use the completed house as a centerpiece or holiday decoration.
The secret is using two clean, dry paper cartons as the frame and covering with graham crackers and candy. I have completed this kid-friendly holiday project with groups of children- aged preschool through high school- they all enjoy it and leave with a one of a kind candy covered "house" and a big smile.
Make a holiday memory today!
