Paper Bag Gingerbread House
A Christmas craft for everyone in your classroom. Created with Christmas and non-Christmas themed houses. In my classroom I have a least 6 different religious beliefs. With a few adaptions, everyone can create and build the Gingerbread house of their dreams.
I have used this simple craft in my room for years. Every year we make wonderful hand-printed Christmas ornaments. We have our Kindergartens make these adorable Gingerbread Paper Bag Houses to “wrap” their ornaments to take home. This Christmas wrapping paper is so much easier than having little hands trying to wrap-up their gifts. On the back of each roof is a “To and From” tag. This makes my life so much easier!
These bags look very cute as a Gingerbread House Village display stuffed with paper.
The kids love coloring all the bits and pieces and then sticking them on to create their own unique House. I have created very easy houses…trim, color and glue. For the more complicated house, we start with the “basic” house…color, cut and glue on the bits. Then, for the kids who excel in fine motor, they just love coloring, cutting and adding all the bits and pieces to their projects, including the sides and the back of the house. Make this project as simple or complex as needed.
I love adding the pieces to cutting trays, in my Montessori classroom for cutting exercises.
