Little Gingerbread Houses

This is a cute craft that my kids do in school every year. It's appropriate for many ages and easy to do at home or for a party. You start with a "gingerbread house".

Just simply hot glue graham crackers to a small empty milk container and then glue that to a small paper plate.

Next, give your decorators a small cup of soft frosting with a plastic knife to spread the frosting on their house. In a common shared area of the table you can have bowls of a variety of items to use for decorating. Some suggestions:

• Gummy Bears
• Christmas Candy Corn
• Miniature Candy Canes
• Teddy Grahams
• M&M's
• Skittles
• Fruit Loops
• Licorice
• Chocolate Chips
• Pastel Chocolate Chips
• Gum Drops
• Gumballs
• Mini Pastel or Holiday Marshmallows

We let our 3 and 5 year old children have freedom to decorating their own houses. Here are some pictures of their creations :)
