Easy  Graham Cracker Houses

Try this toddler Christmas activity as a fun “snacktivity” with the littles!

Ingredients:  – Graham crackers – Glue gun and glue sticks – Serrated knife TIP: Buy more graham crackers than you think you will need since some will likely be broken!


Heat up a glue gun and stick. Make a box starting with one long graham cracker as your base. Glue on sides and a top.


Add two long graham crackers to make a pointed roof. Cut 2 square graham crackers into triangles with a serrated knife. Glue triangles to the ends to finish.


To make the Royal Icing: Stir together the powdered sugar and milk in a very large bowl. Add milk, one tablespoon at a time, as needed to make a very stiff, but uniform icing.


Divide the icing into 2-3 quart size storage bags. Remove air and seal. When ready to decorate the houses, snip off one bottom corner from each bag to make a very small opening.


Decorate with assorted toppings.  Put out an assortment of toppings so the kids can pick and choose what they want on their house.


The houses will last at room temperature for a few weeks. The kids can eat their toppings if they want to, but this is more an idea to be used as a decoration.
