"Gingerbread" Houses

Azure wanted to build gingerbread houses out of graham crackers. Her classroom was doing it the last day of school but she was sick.

So we did them at home. Azure's house is the big one built of graham crackers. Sammy's is the shorter one built from gluten-free Health Valley Rice Bran Crackers.

I built the main structure of each one. An architect I am not.

Azure added a chimney to hers and decorated it. The animal cracker on top with a red M&M nose is Rudolph.

Sammy dictated a garage/backyard for his. He built the pointed roof on the far right. I'm not sure how it stayed on. He also built the kiss on a stick. That is a "light." He told me the garage/backyard is for his animals to sleep in.

They aren't works of art but we had fun.
