Milk Cartons, Graham Crackers, Icing, and Candy
At school this week, I had my students make gingerbread houses. The kids saved their milk cartons at lunch for the foundation of their houses. My ever so kind assistant took the time to hot glue graham crackers to the 20 milk cartons. We hot glue the graham crackers so the house will be more sturdy. The kids brought in all the supplies to create the houses. We had plenty of white icing, gum drops, candy canes, peppermints, life savers, M &Ms, Red Hots, Twizzlers, colored Christmas marshmallows, hard Christmas Candy, and mini Hershey bars. We were ready to roll. They had soooo much fun making them, and I really enjoyed helping/watching. Each student was very creative in making their houses that they all turned out so cute! 5 days left until Christmas Break :) More crafts to come!!
