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!

Step 1: NEEDED SUPPLIES

-Newspaper to cover your table work surface (optional)
-2 washed and dried small paper cartons (I used two one cup milk cartons)
-Masking tape and a stapler
-1 plate (glass or plastic- your choice---just make sure it is sturdy and doesn't flex)
-Damp paper towels---hands will get sticky!
-Royal icing with piping bag or can/tube of decorating icing with tips
-Graham crackers- at least 7-8 full crackers (plain/cinnamon sugar/gingerbread flavor- your choice)
-Sugar ice cream cone (optional)
-Green food coloring (optional)
-Knife, scissors, toothpicks---tools to shape cookies/crackers/candies
-Assorted candies/cookies/marshmallows/pretzels
-Confectioner’s Sugar and sifter (optional- use if you want “snow”)
Nice!
Love it!
Cute!
