Adorable, Easy, & Fun Gingerbread Houses You Can Make With Kids

Whether you’re starting a new family tradition or looking to take your annual gingerbread house to the next level, we’ve got lots of great ideas to make this year’s creation a masterpiece your kids will remember forever. But the most important criteria? They have to be doable with kids. None of these fancy and elaborate gingerbread mansions that require a culinary degree and/or a background in architecture – these gingerbread house ideas are easy to let your kids help with and make a fun family project for everyone.

Not a fan of the taste of gingerbread, or got a picky eater who isn’t? No problem! We’ve included “gingerbread” houses that are made of Pop Tarts, pretzels, graham crackers, Rice Krispies, and more … which are pretty much pantry staples when you’ve got little ones around anyway. We’ve also rounded up a couple of non-edible options!

So roll up your sleeves, crank up some holiday tunes, and create a cute little gingerbread house — and, most importantly, some treasured memories too.
