This past December, for the Followers Christmas Parties, we made gingerbread houses. It was a blast! We had done this activity before, but this time we gave the students a little more freedom with what they wanted to create. There was a simple example, which some students attempted, while others dreamed big and created stadiums!
Here is the recipe for the frosting/glue to hold the houses together:
- Beat the whites of 2 large eggs (we used “liquid egg whites” as a substitute, which worked well) in a mixer @ high speed
- When foamy, add 2 1/2 cups of confectionery sugar 1/2 cup at a time
- the process takes approximately 7-8 minutes
We used graham crackers, spice drops, M&Ms, lots of sprinkles, marshmallows, wafer bars, licorice, and candy canes.
