Easy Gingerbread House

What to do:

Step One: Place the milk carton on the styrofoam tray. Spread the white frosting on the outside of the milk carton.

Step Two: Arrange four graham crackers on the outside of the milk carton. These will be the walls of the house. Add frosting as needed to make them stick.

Step Three: Place one graham cracker on top of your gingerbread house. This will be the base of the roof. "Glue" it on with frosting.

Step Four: To make a pointed roof, lean two graham crackers on the roof's base. Secure them with more frosting.

Step Five: Decorate the house. The white frosting looks like snow, so it's fun to spread some on the roof and around the outside of the house. Use the tube frosting to make fancy trim, windows, or doorways. Use small candies for trimmings and decoration. Use construction paper to make a pathway, trees, or people.
