Use this paper bag gingerbread house project as an inexpensive, low-prep holiday craft for your Christmas celebrations or as a cute decorated gift bag for your students to use to package their homemade gifts (2 gift tag options are included!) Writing pages are also included if you would like to add a little language arts to the fun! You may choose to have your students finish a creative first-person adventure that has them following a curiously quick gingerbread man through a candy forest or have them do a how-to writing that asks them to describe how they would build a gingerbread house. All writing pages come in standard AND primary lined versions, and blank lined versions are available if you would rather assign your own writing prompt. All craft pieces come in both black & white AND color (which is a great option to use if you want to create a sample to show your students, but don’t want to spend forever coloring!) This project is also ideal for any classroom that wants to integrate a gingerbread house project but needs to avoid allergy-triggering ingredients... and it costs way less than a trip to the grocery store to buy all that candy and graham crackers!
