Gingerbread -- School-Age
Graham Cracker House
Need: Packages of graham crackers, frosting, trims (raisins, nuts, candies, small marshmallows, red hots), 1/2 pint sized milt containers(size that comes with child's school lunch). Styrofoam plates or heavy paper plates.
Glue the milk carton onto the Styrofoam plate. Use the milk carton as the base, the frosting as glue, and graham crackers as the walls and top.
Have children place frosting on the sides and top of the milk carton. Stick graham crackers to the sides of the milk carton for walls. Place two graham crackers on top for the roof. Frost the crackers on the milk carton and decorate with trims.
It is best to put all glue bottles away as some children may use them to glue the candy trim onto the graham cracker house.
Can add a frosting sidewalk(outline with candy trims) on the plates.
