Graham Cracker House Building

The Chefs
 This is a great activity to do next week when the kids are off from school.
Set table ahead of time.

  • Approx a 12” x 12” cardboard or baking pan covered tightly in tin foil. This will serve as the platform for the house. If you use a baking pan, make sure it is not one you will need soon.
  • A cardboard foundation for the house such as individual juice boxes (taped together), box from snacks, cut off the bottom of a ½ gallon OJ or milk carton. This will determine the size of your house. I recommend small.
  • One box of honey graham crackers – any brand.
  • Tape the foundation firmly to the cardboard.

  • Chewing gum – Big Red
  • Neccos
  • Red Hots
  • Chocolate sprinkles
  • Rainbow sprinkles
  • Coconut flakes for snow

  • Mini marshmallows
  • Tootsie Rolls
  • Green leaf candy
  • Gum drops, assorted colors
  • Red & White Peppermint candies
  • Mini candy canes
  • M&M’
  • Twizzlers
  • Skittles

The Edible Glue: Royal Icing Recipe
      3 egg whites - frothy
·    1 lb confectioner's sugar - about 4 cups
·    Sift with 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
·    Add together
·    Beat 5-10 minutes until right consistency

Keep covered with wet paper towel so it does not dry out.

Merry Christmas!
