How to Make a Paper Gingerbread House
1. Print off the free templates.
You can get the templates at the bottom of the post (on the form with the preview of the template).
2. Color the templates.
Kids can color the templates however they’d like!
We used a light brown for the gingerbread color (to match a homemade gingerbread house) but you can also color them in any color to make them Christmas houses.
3. Cut out the template.
You will also need to cut a little extra slit on the sides of the roof so you can fold this part down completely.
4. Fold along the dotted lines.
The outside dotted lines are where the glue goes.
5. Glue the house together.
Start with the sides of the house and do the roof last. Use a strong glue and let it thoroughly dry before attempting another section.
Alternatively, you can use glue dots or hot glue (adult assistance)
Kids will love making these adorable gingerbread paper houses!
