These are so much fun to make and a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your family!
My grandchildren and I make one of these every year and we always have so much fun together. They are already asking when we can make one.
Gingerbread houses are a Christmas tradition the whole family can make together. Instead of spending hours making gingerbread, you can make gingerbread houses using graham crackers to save yourself both effort and time during a busy season. Display your houses on your table or in a decorative corner for the Christmas holidays.
One year my daughter made sixteen gingerbread cottages and had fourteen children over to decorate them…at first she thought she’d lost her mind.
To pull this off, She pre-assembled the cottages the day before the party, and filled every table in her house with all those yummy fixings for decorating an hour or so before the children arrived.
She said they had so much fun that it was worth it, but she hasn’t thought about doing that again!
Not everyone makes a gingerbread house at Christmas time. I remember one year as a kid we made a graham cracker train at a church activity, but that was as close as I got to a ‘gingerbread’ anything. My husband’s family, however, grew up making them every year. When I married my husband, I took on the tradition of making them with my husband. It’s one thing I really look forward to every year.
