3d cardboard gingerbread house

This project is intended for an adult to construct with a child ages 4+ to decorate.

Step 1

First, click here to download and print the template; then cut out the pieces.
TIP: If needed, adjust the size of your house by enlarging or reducing the template when you print.

Step 2

Trace two of each pattern piece onto corrugated cardboard so that you have a front and back for the house, two sides (the longer rectangle pieces) and two roof pieces (the smaller rectangle pieces).

Step 3

ADULT: Use scissors to carefully cut out all of the pieces.
TIP: Adults may use an craft knife with a ruler to make more precise cuts. Please ensure the safety cap is on the craft knife whenever it is not in use.

Step 4

ADULT: Hot glue the front and back to the side pieces, then glue on the roof pieces.

Step 5

Decorate the gingerbread house as desired by painting on a door and windows, adding pom-poms, stickers and chenille pipe cleaners.
