I just love the memories this instills in a child.


I did this with my nieces over 40 years ago now.

Get Festive looking candy!



There are so many festive looking candies you can use to make the house and colorful candy.


Just use your creative imagination to create your own designs.


Using graham crackers is so much easier than baking ginger bread, and our grandchildren love the taste of these even better.


If you use cinnamon graham crackers that really makes the cinnamon smell even more Christmasy!

Everyone Can Make Their Favorites



We have even had instead of a cookie bake year, a graham cracker Christmas house party.


You can invite guests to make a house and get in the Christmas mood by just having a little inspired pre Christmas party making these cute little houses.


They also make a nice gift for your work associates or even a child who you are really fond of.

Faces That Smile Are the Best!



I love how Christmas inspires everyone, it is the best time of the year.


Nothing is better than seeing a child face light up with pride of making something special.


This is an inspirational project for kids and family.


Christmas houses are fun, creative and delicious!


This Graham cracker house just happens to be easy too!

Graham Crack Christmas House

prep time: 45 minscook time: total time: 45 mins
The Cutest project for Christmas to do with kids and young at heart

ingredients:

Powdered sugar
Hot Water
2 packs graham crackers sleeves ( I use cinnamon crackers, I love the aroma!
Assorted candy
Cardboard can be used as a plateform to make a bigger scene around the house

NOTE: Look for small candies that are red and green. I used small chocolate rolls for the log cabin effect. Red and green chocolate covered nuts, candy canes, chocolate bars cut for doors and windows, red hots

Cookies can be used for a wreath, red hot candies, gum drops, jelly beans look like Christmas lights. 


Get creative! Cover cardboard with foil or color paper to put your house on top of and make a Christmas scene all around by adding other elements of christmas like trees or snowman in the backround and decorate the whole board with candy canes using frosting as the glue.

instructions:

First you will need two full graham crackers and check out the video to see the cuts at a 45 degree angle to make a pitch , for the front and back. You will have two crackers with a pointed top for each side. Break one full cracker in half. Those will be the sides.


In a medium bowl add 3 cups of powdered sugar to the bowl, add some hot water by teaspoonfuls until it makes a thick glue like texture. Make more if needed later for any backround scenes or whatever you decide to reinforce.

Take the glue and start smearing it on to assemble the house gluing the sides together all four pieces, waiting 3 to 4 minutes in between to add another piece. Then wait at least 10 minutes to dry before adding the roof last. I usually let it dry around 2 hours before adding any candy. To keep the glue from drying out add a wet towel over the bowl.

Once the house is assembled, I place 4 or more whole graham crackers on the surface of whatever platform I use with a little frosting glue on the bottom, then the crackers to hold in place Add the house on top and start decorating. Use frosting in between and cracks or fill it in wherever you want it to look like snow.

Let it dry, if things slide make sure the frosting is thick and just move it back in place and hold it a few minutes to adhere. You are welcome to make royal icing which has egg whites in it, but I am not of fan of it so I just use a little water and powdered sugar.

Tips: cut on the diagonal with a serated knife with a sawing motion using a cutting board. Make sure you have wax paper on the bottom of whatever platform you use and don't forget to adhere that with frosting glue so it doesn't move. Be patient to let dry a few minutes in between gluing each piece.
Enjoy making memories with your little ones out there!
