Easy Kids Gingerbread House

Kids Gingerbread House

Children love getting crafty around the holiday season, so this kids gingerbread house is the perfect craft for a wintry day. You don’t need a great deal of ingredients, nor do you need any real crafting skills. The end result is a fun and frugal gingerbread house that tastes as good as it looks. Take a look at how you can make your own.

Kids Gingerbread House Ingredients

Ingredients:

Graham crackers
White frosting
Gumdrops
Assorted holiday candies
Plastic baggie

I was able to find all of the ingredients for this project at our local dollar store. The total cost for the ingredients shown here was just $4, and I was able to make several houses out of it all. Now that is a budget friendly craft!

Directions:

1. Begin by placing two crackers together.

2. Put a few spoonfuls of frosting in a plastic baggie, move the frosting to one edge, and snip off the tip to create a piping bag.

3. Put a line of frosting around the edges of the crackers as shown above.

4. Place some crackers standing upright in a teepee or triangle shape, using the frosting at the base almost as glue.

5. Apply a line of frosting to the top to secure the edges of the crackers together.

6. Make decorative lines of frosting along the crackers as shown to give them a gingerbread house look. You can make small shingles or large ones as we did.

7. Go along the edges of the crackers and add additional frosting to secure the house together.

8. You can now take the candy pieces and decorate the house. Add it as you wish to the edging of the roof and house. You can even make a walkway as we did!

9. Add some final details such as the gummy trees or Santa for some extra holiday flare.

That’s all there is to it! In no time at all you can have a decorative and tasty kids gingerbread house. Give this simple craft a try and see how fun and frugal it can be to get into the holiday spirit.

Gingerbread Costumes Supplies

Supplies needed:

Assorted felt
Scissors
Hot glue, glue gun
Thin headband
Brown t-shirt

We were able to find all of the above items at our local Dollar Tree store. If yours does not carry the t-shirts, check your local craft or retail stores as plain colored t-shirts can usually be found for under $5. For our entire outfit, we spent right around $5, making this a frugal option if you are tight on funds but still wanting to get the look.

Directions:

1. Begin by cutting out an assortment of sweets and buttons from your felt. You can trace a pattern first if you wish or just freehand. Circles and swirls make great shapes, are easy to cut, and can be used in a variety of ways.

2. For our sample, we cut out three buttons, a bow tie, and side ruffles. We simply freehand cut these and layered various colors on top of each other to create a detailed effect.

3. Add a small dab of hot glue to the felt pieces and begin applying them to the shirt. You can do three buttons and a bow tie and ruffles as we did or feel free to get your own creative juices going and make designs that appeal to you.

4. For the headband, we simply made some bow shaped pieces and added a circle to the center. We glued the pieces together and then glued the bow to a simple, thin headband. It is a great way to add some extra detail to this costume.

5. Our model in the picture wore simple brown leggings under the t-shirt. You can do the same or even pair it with brown sweatpants to create the perfect gingerbread girl costume.

**This could easily be turned into a gingerbread boy costume by changing up the color pattern.

As you can see, a sweet costume like this can be fun and super frugal. Give this DIY project a try and see what gingerbread goodness you can come up with!

Feel free to share your Gingerbread Costumes pictures with us!
