Easy Steps to Build a Gingerbread House with Graham Crackers

Last week I showed you how to assemble Gingerbread Houses in minutes, but I only showed how to assemble a house with gluten free crackers. Since regular graham crackers have a different shape, I wanted to show you how to build a regular graham cracker gingerbread house, too!

How to Build a Graham Cracker Gingerbread House

I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends. We had a great time. As usual, Grandma outdid herself with the food, and we all overstuffed ourselves! The little ones built the traditional gingerbread houses on Friday. We built one gluten free house and six graham cracker houses.

There are many ways to build a house with graham crackers. I know kids often make them out of milk cartons at school. I think this method is even easier! First, you need to know what shapes to cut. Be sure to check here to see how to cut graham crackers without breaking them.

For each house, you’ll need five full-sized graham crackers. Cut them according to the image below.

In order for the roof to fit, be sure that you trim the side pieces slightly. They must be a little bit shorter than half the cracker. If you are trying to save crackers, you can make the roof pieces half a cracker instead of 3/4 of a cracker. They are so much cuter this way, though!

Now, hurry up and go cut your graham crackers. I’ll wait.  . . . Finished? Let’s get started. Check out this video to see how to quickly assemble your house. No royal icing necessary! (You’ll want it later when it’s time to decorate, but for now, you don’t need it.)

That’s it! How easy is that? When I did this last weeekend, I had six houses ready to decorate in just a few minutes. You can, too! (The part that takes the longest is cutting the crackers.)

What do you think? Will you make gingerbread houses this year? Do you go the easy route and use graham crackers, or do you make the gingerbread yourself? I tried it once. The houses were beautiful, but it took forever!!!! (And, I burned one batch, which means it took even longer!)

  6. Adorable! I love gingerbread houses and love this simple design is perfect for working with little ones. Will have to make one with my granddaughter soon!

  7. We finally made our own last year! Didn’t turn out quite as nice as yours because the kids loaded it up with M&M’s and other stuff. Could hardly see the house at all!
