Happy National Gingerbread House Day!  Pre-packaged Gingerbread House kits can get expensive (and messy).  So, let’s talk about some alternatives if you don’t want to buy a kit or bake your own cookie structure.  I even included a couple that don’t require any food!

Decorated Pretzel Cabin

Use graham crackers as a base to make this super cute log cabin out of pretzels.

Nutty Christmas Cabin

How charming is this cabin?  It’s a base of graham crackers topped with nuts and pretzels.

Cardboard Gingerbread House

This is the perfect craft for younger kids who may make a major mess out of icing and sweets.

Rice Krispies House

Love Rice Krispies?  This is the house for you.  Make a big batch of them and dive on in.


Chocolate Gingerbread House

I may have to make this house a little smaller than it calls for because I’ll be eating all of the Kit-Kat bars I bought for it.

Recycled Carton Gingerbread House

Save your cartons and make this cute house.  If you drink a lot of juice and milk, you can make a whole town!
