What You Need:
How to Make::
- Single serving milk cartons, empty and washed
- White Icing [store bought or recipe]
- Graham Cracker Squares
- Decorations, candies, sprinkles or other holiday treats
Get organized first. Have all of your decorations, candies and such in individual bowls, containers or bags.
Prepare white icing/frosting if you are not using store bought.
Each person should have their own single serving milk carton. Place your carton on a sheet of waxed paper on top of heavy cardboard or a paper plate.
Attach graham cracker squares to sides of carton by spreading icing/frosting on carton and pressing cracker firmly onto carton.
Do the same for the roof using two graham cracker squares. For area between sides and roof - cut a graham cracker in half on diagonal to form a triangle and attach the same way.
Once you have your sides and roof attached use icing/frosting to attach decorations and candies to your house. You can pipe icing/frosting into the cracks with a cake decorator or with a plastic bag filled with icing/frosting.
Use your imagination to create windows and doors with different shaped and colored candies. Add other elements as you wish.
You can spread icing/frosting around your house on the paper plate or waxed paper to form a base that looks like snow.
Once your creation is complete you can allow to dry over night and use as a decoration year after year. Or, you can gobble it right up!
This is even more fun to make with a group of your friends or family members!
Enjoy and have fun!
