Graham Cracker Chalet

Leave a comment

Frosted House
One of our advent activities was to make a gingerbread house. What we came up with is neither gingerbread, nor a house; but rather a cardboard graham cracker chalet.

I duct-taped some cut cereal boxes and a cardboard packing box together, used old-fashioned royal icing–which by the way, I was afraid to let the kids put anywhere near their mouths due to all the salmonella warnings surrounding this recipe, and plenty of candies.

Luke, Amelia, and Jack enjoyed this one. Ty and Gabe wanted no part other than to eat the decorations–pre-royal icing, that is.
It was still worth it.
