Let's make a "Gingerbag" House!
Here’s a non-messy gingerbread house, that’s a quick, easy & fun craftivity, as an alternative to the gooey graham cracker creations, that often fall apart.
There are 10 pages of candy, cakes and ice-cream trimmings, chimneys, doors, and windows
, that your kiddos can choose to decorate their paper bag gingerbread house with.
Face the bag towards you so that the bottom of the bag is at the top, and looks like a flap. This is the perfect place to glue the “candy roof” and chimney.
Students cut out whatever pieces they want to glue to the front of their house.
They arrange the pieces ‘til they are satisfied with the look, and then glue them down. Children then color the trimmings with crayons or markers.
White puffy paint, glitter glue, and stickers add pizzazz to the houses.
For that finishing touch, glue a child’s photo in one of the windows.
You can also spritz the "gingerbags"
with some cinnamon scent.
For writing practice, I've included 2 worksheets
where students describe their gingerbread house.
These make a cute bulletin board
Caption: “Mr(s.) _____________’s kindergartners are wishing you a sweet and cozy Christmas.” OR…. “From our house to yours, we’re wishing you a yummy New Year.”
These are perfect for that last energized week before break too.
Since they're a bag, children can also tuck things inside to bring home.
Nice "go along" for your Christmas Around the World
