Graham Cracker Village

 This year 11 children built graham cracker houses at our annual party. Recipe and directions below.

Everyone brings for each house being built:

  • 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 (or more for larger house) of honey graham crackers – any brand.
  • Tape the foundation firmly to the cardboard.

Sample Supply List

  • Mini marshmallows
  • Tootsie Rolls
  • Green leaf candy
  • Gum drops, assorted color
  • Red & White Peppermint candies
  • Mini candy canes
  • M&M’s
  • Twizzlers
  • Skittles
  • Chewing gum – Big Red – several packs
  • Neccos 
  • Meringue Powder
  • Confectioners’ sugar
  • Rod pretzels – long and short
  • Ziplock bags
Royal Icing is the edible glue that holds the graham crackers and candy together.
3T            meringue powder
4 cups      confectioner’s sugar
6T            water

Mix together, put about a tablespoon of icing in snack size Ziplock bag and clip corner. Each child will need at least one bag of icing for their house.
