Gingerbread House


For our last Creative Treats class, the students made Gingerbread Houses from scratch. We made the gingerbread and then they used patterns to cut out the shapes of their houses. We “glued” them together using royal icing and then decorated them using a variety of candies. It’s a great activity to do with your kids and a good way to boost self-esteem, as the finished product is quite impressive!
