What do I mean by kid friendly gingerbread houses? Sturdy walls and roof pieces that are made from real gingerbread to be decorated any way you please!
One of my family’s favorite traditions is making gingerbread houses. We use real gingerbread, not graham crackers. They smell fantastic and it is so fun to see my kids creativeness. I was a little hesitant about my pictures for this post because the gingerbread houses shown are actually the ones my kids made a few nights ago. I didn’t make a fancy, pretty looking one just for show. I wanted you to be able to see these for the kid friendly creations they are. I call these kid friendly also because these gingerbread houses are pretty sturdy. I help with the construction of the structure, but then hand the icing over to the kids and turn them loose. This post includes the measurements for the gingerbread pattern or templates that I use as well as the gingerbread and royal icing recipes.
