Graham Cracker Gingerbread Houses

A preschool activity. There’s a longer example from here.

coverFrom a stapled collection of recipes from my preschool, c. 1982, in University Heights, Ohio.


Gingerbread (?) Houses


  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

Beat five minutes with electric mixer. Cover with damp cloth to keep moist (if not using right away).

We used 1/2 pint milk cartons–small nuts and candies and lots of imagination–Graham crackers (6 per house) were buttered and attached to the carton–decorations added as needed!
