Fun and Frugal Holiday Activity with Kids
I LOVE enjoying holiday fun with my boys, especially hands-on activities that allow us to make special decor, cards, and memories.
However, I do not love spending a ton of money on kits and supplies 😉 There’s already enough things to spend money on over the holidays!

How to Make This 3D Gingerbread House Coloring Craft
You’ll find simple, step-by-step instructions on how to put together your 3D gingerbread house in the right lower corner of the template. Such a fun coloring craft activity for the holiday season!
First, I recommend using crayons, color pencils, or fine-tip markers on your gingerbread house coloring page.
When you’re done customizing your gingerbread house, use scissors to cut out the template. If you’re enjoying this holiday craft with younger kids, I suggest sitting with them and taking it slow as you guide where to cut. Also, use child-safe scissors!
After the template is cut out, fold along solid lines for the walls, floor, and roof. Also, fold the glue tabs. It makes it easier to assemble and help the glue adhere when this folding step is completed at this time.
Prior to adding glue, gently assemble the sides together so you have an idea on how it all fits (and where the glue tabs will be).
My boys and I found it helpful to apply glue to all the tabs before final assembly.
When your gingerbread house is assembled, you can reinforce sides with clear tape.
