Building a gingerbread house is a fun tradition that makes for a perfect indoors activity during the cold winter months.
The activity allows us to be as creative and imaginative as we like. Nothing is off limits; the roof can be covered in multicolored candies and the yard lined with peppermints. However, some of us don’t have the time to bake a gingerbread house this holiday season. That’s why we came up with a few different building material ideas that are easier and healthier alternatives to the traditional gingerbread house!
These building materials are no-bake and provide the same amount of decorating fun!
