Gingerbread House Craft for kids

Decorating a Gingerbread House is a tradition in our house. We normally go for the edible ones but then we are disappointed when we eat it and have nothing pretty left to look at.

The advantage of this Gingerbread house craft for kids is that it is not edible so you can keep it year after year and admire it! My 3D Paper Gingerbread House is the same!

It is a simple painting craft, followed by some decorating with accessories and glue which little ones can help with. 

You can mainly paint it or even buy stickers to stick onto it. Older kids will probably want to paint their own decor, whereas younger ones might want to stick sequins and glitter on!

When you get this craft completed you should do my Popsicle Stick Reindeer craft
