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!

1

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.

2

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.

3

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.

4

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.

5

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

6

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.
