Tips for making gingerbread houses:


1) Use melted white almond bark to assemble the house. Melt the bark in the microwave for a couple of minutes and then spoon it into Ziplock bags.  Cut a tiny bit off the corner of the bag and let the kids go to town “gluing” the house together.  It dries so fast and makes a really sturdy house.   You can use it to decorate as well.


2) Use a plastic serrated knife to cut the graham crackers.  Like the kind you get with fast food.  A good quality knife will break the crackers.


3) You need 6 full graham crackers per house.


4) Decorate sugar cones with icing to make Christmas trees.
