Anyway, last week the kids made these adorable Edible Gingerbread Houses and I just wanted to share them here on my blog. What a great troop project, school project or just a kid's project for parents to do with them at home. Here is how they made them along with a materials list.
Cardboard covered with aluminum foil (the base)
Empty Single-Serving Milk Carton
Ice Cream Cone (for the tree)
M & M Candies
Licorice Nuggets (bite-size)
Round Peppermint Hard Candies
Store Bought Frosting
This project can get messy. Cover your work surface and have the kids wear old clothing.
Turn the ice cream cone upside down and cover it with frosting and additional small candies. The skinny licorice ropes work well wrapped around the trees. Let them finish up by using all of the leftover candies to decorate their snow village scene. Simple and Easy!!!
