Cardboard Gingerbread House

We are planning on putting together our gingerbread house tonight and Sweet Girl has been eyeing the box for a few days.  She is anxiously waiting to build it and asks about one-zillion times a day if we can "do it now"!  To try to appease her until this evening I put together a little cardboard gingerbread house for her to color, decorate and play with.  It actually turned out to be a lot of fun (and a lot less messy)!

I used one of the random boxes we had in our recycling bin.  I basically just filled a box inside out and cut a little door.

Then I used two other boxes and shaped them into a point for a roof.

Sweet Girl colored it with markers.

And then added some "gumdrop" stickers and windows.

I pulled out our stash of Christmas stickers which actually included a lot of candy stickers.

Then we added two little candy canes made from pipe cleaners.

And a gingerbread man....

Oh...and even the princess got a chance to visit the gingerbread house.  What gingerbread house is complete without princesses??
