Gingerbread House Kits
Kids love to be creative and Christmas time is a great time for them to get their creative juices going. Making a Ginger Bread House is lots of fun for everyone. Not only is it fun to make, but it also works as a really festive decoration to help dress up any room for the holidays. But if you are the one who is actually baking the ginger bread it can also be a very hard job.
I for one am not the greatest baker, but I love to decorate and do crafts. So what we do, is we us the Gingerbread House Kits that already have the gingerbread ready to go. This way we can have the fun putting the Gingerbread house together and decorate it for the holidays.

Easy Ginger Bread House (Made out of Graham Crackers)
You will need a box of graham crackers.
Icing (which works as glue):
- 1/2 pound confectioner's sugar
- 3 tbs. butter/margarine
- 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
- 1 1/2 - 2 tbs. Milk
Mix all the ingredients together until smooth and easy to spread. If it is too runny just add more sugar. If it is too hard, just add more milk.
Pieces of Candy
You will use the graham crackers as the sides of your house. Use the glue in a pasty bag to help glue the pieces together. Once your house is build, put extra icing on the top of the house and cover with candy!
