Christmas DIY : Recycled Gingerbread Village

blog_christmas-diy-gingerbread_house_dec_16_01

We’re getting closer to the most magical time of the year and we couldn’t be more excited!
To count down, we’ve teamed up with Jacinta from CintaandCo. for another super fun DIY.
Jacinta is an Australian based mama of three and Scientist. She posts fun learning activities on her Instagram page and today will share another fabulous Christmas project with you. So gather the kids and create beautiful memories this Christmas while nurturing their creative spirit! 

I am so happy and excited to be collaborating on another blog post for Alex and Alexa.
This cute gingerbread village is made from recycled cardboard. The houses are really easy to assemble and are a great way for children to develop their fine motor skills and inspire their creativity. I think they would look amazing as a centrepiece on your dining table on Christmas day. We even added some cotton ball snowballs and some coloured confetti snow to finish ours.

Using a ruler, draw out the pieces of your gingerbread house. Cut each of the pieces out. Depending on the age of your child and the thickness of your card, you may need to help with the cutting.

Decorate your houses with the chalk markers. Be as creative as you like, adding doors, windows and lots of snow!

Piece your house together. Be generous with the glue to ensure that your pieces stick together.

Set your village up to play with. We added some cotton balls as snow and some colourful confetti as our snow!
